I couldn't be happier with the way these came out. The only things left to do are:
- Fasten a stainless steel plate on the top of the keel. This will be done with the "Ikea" technique of drilling holes horizontally through the keel which will hold a nut and washer and then drilling down from the top for the bolt which holds on the top plate.
- I'm going to fabricate a handle for the top of the rudder out of cedar and mahogany. I left a 1-1/2" carbon fiber tab on top of the rudder to hold the handle.
- I still need to mold the rudder cassette. Now that the rudder is finished, I can use it as the mold for the cassette.
