droping the rudder


I was NOT looking forward to this as i do confined entry repairs for a living and the quadrant on the 29 is really freaking stand on your head confined


Through some random act of kindness the quadrant was bronze and fully split and after 40 years it came apart like it was put on last week :cool:



I really did not want o dig a hole in my concrete driveway and was getting nervous BUT it cleared by 1" :laugher
A big thanks to Mainsail for his deck core sealing guide


After a bunch of hole sawing drilling and dremel routing i lost count but it was a LOT of holes :eek:


A bunch of sealing below and filled with the mix of your liking

Well that as a LOT of work with a bunch of detail work LEFT in drilling and epoxy sealing the core

I tried getting in the anchor locker to do some tape work and got STUCK Sunday :eek:

The thought of somebody cutting cutting up my work was quite the motivator :D


Tonight i used the laminate trimmer to cut the core were it overlapped on the hatch now i just have to brush on a few coats to seal it when i drill and pot the about 40 hardware holes:rolleyes:
