e-rudder

Yesterday Annika and I were up at the boat knocking off a few PacCup checklist items, including practicing deployment of the emergency rudder.   It went OK, but I will be drilling some more holes in it to add some attachment points to make it easier to mount, and also to better secure it to the boat.   It is so buoyant that it tries to ride up and out of the mount, and needs to be restrained, here with some green utility line.


The rudder worked fine in the specified 10 kts of wind.
