Button Swan Rudder

by on November 1, 2017

The rudder for the boat was started on Saturday.  Arnt had milled and glued up the stock for it (thanks Arnt!), and Brent got the drawing transferred and cut out.  We then worked on tapering the rudder – it was a lot of wood to remove by plane, but a few of us took turns, and got it done.  The pile of shavings grew a lot! (and smelled great)

Other work included laying out the pattern for floor boards and beginning to fit and shape the in-wales and out-wales.  We’ll need to steam them to fit the curve of the sheer, and hope to get that done this Saturday.

The Sam Mc got her rig checked in preparation for sale, and a couple of minor repairs looked after.  Hope we can find a suitable home for that lovely boat!
