The trouble with any building project is that as it nears completion the to-do list gets longer and longer. At least with the hull nearly painted we’re very much in the last lap with only a few big jobs left but quite a number of little ones.
There’s one footbrace done and ready to be painted.
Two more of these are required to complete the set.
There’s a rudder ready to receive its fittings.
It has a transverse tiller, to which will be attached a fore and aft extension with a universal joint. This should be much more comfortable than what most are using, involving either a bent tiller or a yoke with steering lines. Time will tell whether it works or not.
We lack a trolley, about which see comments at the end of the last post.
Other items may be beyond our ability to make, such as a boat cover and the road trailer.
