Rudder Post

Rudder Post drawing, 22 July 1969 Whitby seems to have made a number of variations on the rudder stock. Michael Grosh has donated these drawings dated 22 July 1969, which he says is similar to what's on his 1967 rudder. This drawing is also available in TIFF format.

Rudder Post Reinforcement drawing, 22 July 1969 This drawing is also available in TIFF format.

John Johnson has contributed photos of his rudderpost repair on hull #69 which shows a somewhat different configuration.

This Old Boat book cover This Old Boat by Don Casey

Subtitled "turn a rundown fiberglass boat into a first-class yacht on a shoestring budget," this book is the best introduction I know boat maintenance for the new or prospective owner of a "modern classic" sailboat. Starting with guidelines for selecting a boat, Casey proceeds to fiberglass repairs, cabin and deckwork, spars and rigging, boat equipment, woodwork, electrical, plumbing, refrigeration, painting, canvas work and sails. All of this is described in clear, simple terms perfect for the inexperienced. This is the book that taught me fiberglass work. But don't let it fool you; this book is appropriate for experienced boatowners, too. I still refer to it.
