These look pretty close? I tried to extrapolate from my remnant and scaling off parts of your photos. I think it is too "fat" but this will work for the initial ripping and gluing tonight I think. Then I can cut/sand down from there to a more finished shape. (My plan anyway).

The mahogany was too nice - I am going to use that beautiful wood to make hatch and door parts instead. We are going with Cedar after reading a Gungeon (sp?) Brothers article on Rudder and Center board construction I found.
