 About the project

A temporary rudder is constructed and hung off a 7/8" aluminum tube filled with a wood dowel epoxied to the tube.  The rudder is temporary because I don't know how big to make the rudder.  At scale size, I think it would be too small to control the boat so I made this one about 50% larger.
