Router vs. rudder quadrant!

IMG_1159The plate from high density polyester resin and multiple layers of fiberglass, are cut in shape with the handheld router from Bosch. The router bits with tungsten carbide tips did the job perfect…!

On the picture you can also see the model, constructed to find the right diameter of the rudder quadrant and the axis in the pedestal. The quadrant/rudder will have 80 degrees travel and 540 degrees rotation on the wheel steering (same as the Bavaria 36) so when the rudder is amidships, it can turn 270 degrees port- or starboard to reach the stop (3/4 of a full rotation)
