Sounds fair enough, I shall try and obtain a bit oeach then, I did look into it once before, but went off the idea when faced with the price of timber. I shall have to look around a little more carefully, yellow cedar shoudl not be horrendously expensive. I did price up enough to do a rudder and centreboard from a UK supplier in Bristol about a year ago, but it was around £200 for the timber, which seemed excessive to me. I’ll have a better dig around for prices this time.

I have a nice big 8×4 CNC router, with vacuum clamping, so providing I can get the wood, milling it to shape shuold be the easy part. I have some 100mm sorfacing heads somewhere, so should be able to skim it to thickness in a jiffy 🙂
