Soon, eggie. Rudder goes in this weekend. I had to order a new self aligning bearing for the top since I wasn't happy with the original Harken bearing. The stainless sleeve that slides over the post has a flange at the bottom that will serve as the stop to prevent the rudder from contacting the hull. I'll have to drill a hole on the rudder post tube so I can install the set screws...so lots of planning.
I should have the rigging for the diamond spreaders/shrouds this week as well. I'm working with Todd Jones at Thomas Hardware and he has been a huge help. Gotta check in with Jimmy to see if the kites are ready.
We're targeting a mid May launch. Then it's up to Holland for the summer. By the way, the new rudder looks awesome. Same shape and much heavier. And for all that are curious, it has been reported to LMPHRF.
Can't wait to see you guys on the water.
