The rudder was stripped down. I also stripped the tiller fitting and had it hot dipped. The rudder was made from layers of marine ply and is still in good shape. I stripped back to clean wood and sealed with epoxy.
The pick above shows the colour I have cloosen. It is close to the original green and is a mix of Toplac Donegal green and Mauritius blue.
The rudder fittings are bronze from Classic Marine.
