Re: Manufactured Emergency Rudders - are you in need of it?

I have a carbon-fibre pole from a project that never happened and a couple scraps of marine plywood under the vberth, drill, nuts, bolts, brackets, and line are always at hand... figured I would "MacGyver" the solution when needed. IMO raw materials are more adaptable and valuable than a finished product. It might be fun to experiment with a build in calm conditions during our next cruise...
