Rudder Blade Fitted to Rudder Box

Rudder Blade and Rudder Box are largely completed since two years. Since then I know that the rudder blade clamps in the box.
Today I went to the problem. I used a copper-pipe and a plywood sheet pasted up with sandpaper to widen the slit. There were three hours of work up to success.

Stowage Hatch Coaming

Starboard hatch coaming glued to deck
The stowages at stern should be accessible from deck. Therefore I opened the deck on starboard and portside and framed the openings with hatch coamings.

Stainless Steel Works

The stainless steel work for rudder gudgeons and keel lifting fittings gave away to a professional locksmith. The result is very nice to look at, but it was not that cheap.
