Sail a Rudderless Ship

The rudder took a beating out in the wind and rain. Only when the fabric was removed was the extent of the rot seen. Ribs had seperated, plywood had delaminated , and bolts corroded beyond even scrap value. The spar warped by fabric shrinkage and had to be built up.As we speak my lovely rebuilt rudder hangs in my computer room where I can throw darts at it.
