First Major Fix – Rudder Cage – Phase 5 Redux - Install Rudder Cage

Let's try this again. Yeah! We finally have completed our first major fix!! After the last time, I made doubly sure that nothing was missing.

I purchased a U-bolt from our local West Marine store and carried it and the rudder cage over to Capital City Machine Shop to have it welded. They had to cut the U-bolt down before welding it to the rudder cage (another $60). My mistake, I should have noticed that it was missing the first time around.

Again, we took everything to the boat. It took Bill a total of 30 minute to bolt the rudder cage onto the boat and then we took her out for a spin.

It's nice having her operational again!
