Added rudder today. Fibreglass applied and fillers between rudder and shaft.

I put in a temporary mini servo, not pictured, but it was just beside the control horn.

Not your traditional clamping method, but it works when the hull is very thin and clamps just do not meet the required pressure point.

When the glue is dry under the deck, I will sand lightly, then apply the fibreglass.

Mini-Servo installed and works just fine next to the rudder shaft.

There will be a hatch cover with a Tiller attached to the rudder post. Yet to be made...stay tuned 🙏
