It’s been a mild winter and is supposed to be 70 with a nice breeze this weekend. It’s time to get this rudder arm finished up. Tonight I shaped the arm into a taper from the full thickness down to roughly 1/2″ at the tip of the arm. I also started cutting out the tenon. There’s more trimming to do before it will fit the mortise, but it’s a good start. I hope to have a rough fit tomorrow. It won’t be fully done by Sunday, but hopefully close enough to get on the water and sail.
