New rudder for Capricornia

On Monday evening Hans was able to show off to Matt and the boys the rudder and tiller he and Henk Brolsma have spent many days constructing. We think you will agree that they have done a great job when you see the pic below. It is a ‘kick-up’ for our shallow waters, and looks really well balanced. We like that the control rope could also act as a safety rope – an omission on the last rudder which we came to regret.

If you are looking at the pic and thinking that Capricornia’s paint work is disgraceful don’t worry, you will have a chance to help fix it. We will be announcing work days shortly.
