    Glad to hear it! I sort of figured your absence was either Spring-related or boat-related. Sounds like things are good.Report

    What does your ” textile rudder hinge arrangement” comprise of?Report

    • David Ryan in reply to James B Franks says:

      The rudders are hinged to the stern post of each hull using a cross-lashing arangment. This set-up replaces hundreds, perhaps even thousands of dollars of custom stainless steel fabrication with a dozen yards of rope. It’s strong, cheap, self-fabricateable, impervious to corrosion, and easy to inspect and maintain.Report
