"Build to the work."

I am in the middle of dry-fitting the rudder and tiller to the transom.
This is the upper portion.
This is the lower portion, also showing the structural mock-up of the skeg.
And the backing plate for the upper gudgeon bolts (with temporary hardware).

This works on dry land, too!

Normally, under the conditions the Weekender is designed for, a boarding ladder is not a high priority. But along the R2AK course, it becomes an important safety feature.

I recently got mine dry-fit. In the process of testing it out, I realized that it is quite useful here in my garage as I continue the construction process.
