C22 Gudeons and Rudder
21 days until launch, I am focusing on things that are required to get the boats in the water.
Beautiful weather on Saturday meant, time to get the new rudder hung.
Old gungeons removed:
Butyl Tape (top)
Doubled up the butyl tape
New Rudder Hung
Was a little eventful because the top gudgeon screws into a threaded bar that is between two fiberglass panels with a clearance of about 1/2". I had to be very careful not to have the bar drop out from between the panels. With the gudgeon all gooped up with butyl tape, I put in the starboard screw and felt/heard the bar rotate! I had to get some help from someone at the club to screw the 1/4" stainless screws while I positioned the bar with a screw driver from inside the port locker!
