Fixing the Rudder



It is summer and we have replaced the headstay and staysail stays and installed new Harken Furlers.  Finally on our first sail a saltwater leak and not a little one  ...

We arranged for haul out at Manchester Marine and picturesque Manchester by the Sea - and oh what fun -- just removing the rudder to getting to the backing gland was a major operation.

There is water in the rudder but dealing with that will wait to another day -- and a bunch more cash!
