Hi guys. Brian, question... "Tom Stockwell's Design"
Can you elaborate please?
I am picking up a 1979 Venture 25 on Saturday. The rudder is a "repaired rudder". Someone did a repair job on the rudder after was apparently sheered off. They "stuck it together" with some kind of glue and then built a metal strengthening bracket and bolted through it.
I want to build something. I was thinking about a kick-up type or something.
