Re: "Hey, East Coast Hawkeye got a boat!"...

Thanks carl762, SloopJonB, Blutoyz, Delta10 and Justitflie. I know I have a LOT of work ahead of me, but am 'undaunted'! Despite the FACT I won't get her in the water this year ('13), I'LL be on the water, learning the fine art of SAILING! Thank you all for the support and encouragement.

Thanks Dale! I've already looked but I will be diligent! As a carpenter, I really need prints or diagrams. But, given the chance, I'll take my own measurements and start making sawdust!

Hey "Faster"... THANKS! YES, I can fabricate some gudgeons or pintles (??? have to Google those! LOL) and as far as the plywood encased rudder... I AM a Carpenter, and Marine Plywood is STILL WOOD! LOL Would you happen to know the dimensions, angles/degrees, multi-positions the 'stock' rudder/tiller come in? Again, any info is GREATLY appreciated!

I always thought those were a very cool looking boat - like a smaller Pearson Flyer.

Re: "Hey, East Coast Hawkeye got a boat!"...

hey Gary.. congrats, interesting looking boat.

Good news is the rudder is transom-hung so as a fabricator you can make up some gudgeons or pintles (whichever is necessary... assume there are some fittings on the transom still) and building a rudder like that is much easier than a stock/underhung rudder that many boats might have. You could build and shape a plywood rudder and then encapsulate it in glass and epoxy easily enough.
