Getting the rudder ready

Posted by – March 25, 2010


I ground out all of the bad spots in the fiberglass. Doesn’t look like any of the delamination was structural. I’ll lay a layer or two of fiberglass over the seams to be safe.
I also drilled out the existing bolt holes. I’ll fill them with thickened epoxy and re-drill them the proper size. Hopefully that’ll make the rudder waterproof.
We have to get this done so we have time for the epoxy, barrier coat, and paint to dry before we go in the water. A bit of rain is on the way so that complicates things.
