Chessies new rudder
The rudder was delivered and when I left,Charles and Steve were about to lift it into place.
The guys arrive to collect the new Irwin 54 rudder,we loaded it together but weighed it first,the scales tipped at 82 kgs!
The next stage is to lift the rudder up,to make this a lot simpler and almost a one man job,there is now a removable screw in top eye bolt,this means the boats mizzen winch will be able to pull the rudder into place,the rudder
heel shoe is removable.
