Here are the rudder gudgeons installed. The camera angle makes the lower one look tilted, but the silver rod has the pair plumb and aligned for the rudder. Ordered 8 fancy bushings needed; they will be pressed in to that green G10 fiberglass tube seen in the gudgeon-build photos.
The whole aft scoop area is getting tied together structurally, including 5 layers of 18oz BD glass in the gudgeon area – I went a little beefier here than the F39 plans, deciding that a couple more pounds would make us more assured in a storm some day.
The starboard side looks better now with the beam fairings in place. This final shape is much better looking than just the square box beam.
