I'm looking for suggestions on how to refinish
my Oday Mariner rudder
. Pictures attached.
The previous owner did a good job restoring most of the boat
a few years ago but the rudder
has been neglected and needs a
complete go over.
What's the best way to strip off the old paint
crease and an orbital sander? A combo of both?
I plan on fixing the chunk missing from the trailing edge by cutting out
a rectangular piece then expoxy in a new piece and then shaping
by hand plane. I would like to keep the finish natural wood so what would
be the best way to do this?
Also the top half seems to be aluminum
, so how do I strip and refinish?
The bolts holding on the lower pintle seem to be locked on
maybe with locktight so unscrewing them and taking the whole thing apart
might be an isue.
Thanx in advance
