Re: Ana Capri or Anacapri?
Yeah the leading edge was the mystery component from your pictures (and my memory). The leading edge was the missing angle and I was just drew something to join the other angles. I wonder if I should cut that curve down to be straight so I get a more consistent airfoil.... I will have to play that by ear at this point. (I tend to over think things...)
Of all the pictures I took I cant believe I did not get any pictures of the rudder. Advice to anyone with a "rare" boat - get measurements and photos of all your odd components while you have one to look at. Capt Bill has learned lesson #243 the hard way!
We had a bit of an impromptu party last night at my woodworking friend house and cut and gorilla glued all the 2x4 rough sawn cedar. He even had a biscuit joint device and each joint has 1/2 dozen of those things in each joint. Then it will be for me to do a lot of sanding and shaping to NACA 012. I then have a gallon of resin left over to soak it with and then maybe probably I will cover it with some fiberglass.
The beers came out before the camera did so no pictures yet... I will try to update as I go.
Great idea on the rudder raising customization I think I will go ahead and make a hole for that while I am building it.
