A new rudder from Rudder Craft

The rudder from Rudder Craft is here.  Neater and more secure packing I have not seen!

Lining up the beautiful new tiller handle was a big concern

It is a thing of beauty.  Note how the gas strut holds the rudder up and down!

I don't know if you have priced a set of Shaw and Tenney 9 foot oars lately.  The price will take you aback.  You can easily spend more than $300 without the shipping.
I found these on Amazon for just under $100.  They are remarkably beautiful and flawless.   I have a set of plastic oar collars coming from CLC.
The rudder from Rudder Craft is coming. Can't wait to see it!
