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.

Any remaining problems are due to the skipper, not the rudder.
I wondered about that too. I did not have the patience to play with it on the failure day, but I am going to experiment with this later so I am ready for the next time. I should make sure that I can sail the boat without a rudder.

LOL, how does that always seem to happen?? Nice to have a friend in the woodworking business at least.

You and I are pretty much neighbors, Bill! I live in Orange Lake, about 12 miles north of you.

Hello neighbor! I just moved to Beverly Hills (closer to the ocean) and the boat is currently docked on Lake Wier until I get the bigger bugs worked out at least. Then then plan is to base out of Crystal River for awhile.

Re: Ana Capri or Anacapri?

Very cool! I expect to be ramping my Catalina 22 primarily in Crystal River, too ... as soon as I get the bigger bugs worked out of her!

Re: Ana Capri or Anacapri?

Biscuits leaving voids to collecting water? We cut out my rudder blank tonight and we intersected some of the biscuits. I ask you, would you be concerned about water pockets here? They are white of course because gorilla glue takes over any space it can find!

Re: Ana Capri or Anacapri?

Slathered the resin on - hanging out to dry. It was a lot of sanding - but I started to get the hang of it towards the end. Belt sander was the ticket - just locked it on and played at being a sculptor. Might try it out this afternoon if I get really motivated.

Re: Ana Capri or Anacapri?

Several sails in the log now and the new cedar rudder is working perfectly. No need to fear doing this yourself, nothing to it at all!

Could elaborate on this. Obviously this boat wasn't built in great numbers with mysterious origins. If you could shed some light on this it would be greatly appreciated.
