Right, it looks like the plan is in action … a 3m piece of 6″x2″ Cedar has been ordered for less than a kings ransom ( just over £50 ) from the nice people at Stones Marine Timber … which should yield 45m of 50mm x 19mm .. more than enough to make a new centrebaord and rudder although, save a few dings, the rubber is pretty good, no reason not to make a new rudder I guess while I am at it.

I’ll post pictures of the progress when there is some 🙂
