Rudder Repaired

We managed to repair the rudder!  It’s not a permanent repair, but it is working.

We took our gudgeons to Minney’s in Newport Beach, and after quite a bit of rummaging through parts, found replacements that look almost exactly like the originals.  We will ultimately want to find some heavier duty pieces, but the originals lasted over 30 years, so these should work until we order better ones.

The most difficult part was getting the steel cables from the helm back around the pulleys and then adjusting the cables for tightness.  The steering is working great for now, though.
