I designed and built the mount. Pre-built the right angle section with the central gusset out of epoxy
and biax cloth. Then laminated it to the hull
of the boat 12" above and below with 6" lamination from the gusset to the hull
. The mount is about 1/2-5/8 thick.
Instead of adding a arm to the rudder
post I made a 3/4" aluminum
plate that I bolted to the existing quadrant. I had the advantage of a striped out boat, making access allot easier. The plywood
is the interior
of the lazerets.
