My apologies to the Irish Rovers:-) for the weak reference to their song about the Pig & Whistle :-)
This isn’t work I accomplished this week but on Saturday, the day before yesterday.
I am experimenting with different gudgeon designs and I have the notion I want to build it from wood. I initially had a really complicated multi-part gudgeon but as Paul (shipwright) has explained to me there is not a lot of force on these rudder components. I was quite pleased with my masking tape roll template. To ensure I got two gudgeons of the same size I marked where the tape roll crossed the edge of the board on the first circle and then lined up the roll for the second circle with the edge marks lining up with the new edge of the board.
A short entry today, its pretty late and yesterday was a looonnnng day 1000km+ of driving and then we stayed up ‘til 0400 talking.
