Work on the rudder began by finding the side panels.
I set them against the wall in the workshop two years ago and over time they became part of the landscape to the extent that I forgot they were there. It took several minutes to remember!
The rudder is hollow so the interior will require plenty of clear resin to protect it.
So the first task was to clear coat both inside faces. Here they are in the workshop, curing.
I can't believe that I am starting the rudder!
Progress is illusory though, because finishing the bottom of the hull will be huge task when it eventually happens.
