    I am enjoying your rudder recoring videos. I do have a couple of questions. First, I was a bit surprised that you didn’t template the rudder at several spots before you cut it open. That would have given you a better reference than the mark-1 eyeball to get the foil shape right. Second, I haven’t seen the Petit fairing compound around here yet (here in Bass Harbor, Maine). Have you tried System 3 Quick Fair? I have used it and it seems to be pretty much the same as the Petit product you used. Another product I have used that is pretty much the same is AwlFair. Have you used it?

    I am so great full I found your page I have the will and half a brain and a E26 that needs work that intimidates me to the point that I hope it cures itself.. I m not rich and all I have is this boat and a bicycle no car barely a place to live. Your videos are going to set me out in the right direction thank you.

    Great 4 videos thanks , which solved my dilemma of whether to repair my old leaky rudder or make a new one. Clear and easy to follow instructions. I was struggling to find a supplier of liquid pouring foam in England but eventually located Trident Foams who supplied me with a product called Tripor 224 – this has a density of 200kg/m3 or roughly 12lb/ft3. It’s been great fun rebuilding the rudder and with good end result.
