Hardware the Hard Way Part 4 – Fitting

 Caesura gets her tail


(phone cam from the shop)

Pre-drilling and setting screws tonight. The rudders and hardware fit and work. Whew! They can waggle their tails now.







Now to do the same for the rest of the hardware, then take it all off and waterproof the holes, then put all on again.

First, though, I have to make this little brass weed/crab pot/oyster bar rudder toe protector. Looks easy. It’s just flat piece of brass bent to shape. Like everything else, it’s not. That bending part is a pain.
