Thanks Bill

So yeah, my rudder head got snapped off, shit happens. But there are several races before the July break... what to do, what to do? When something like this happens you find out who your real friends are. Brock was the first to call and offer up his spare rudder. Bill D. called next and said he'd help me with a quick fix he had just done to his rudder. Then Søren calls after seeing my last blog post and offers yet another rudder solution. I made arrangements to meet Bill down at the boat this afternoon. Bill came prepared with pre-cut plywood, bolts, washers, screws and a plan. We flipped the boat around in the slip, slapped on some cheeks, hacked off the extra threaded bits, flipped the boat back around, done. It'll work until real repairs can be done or I buy a new one.
Thanks Bill for making this so quick and easy.
