I am going to use the mold that Al made for a rudder.

Here i am cutting out some scraps of fiberglass cloth that I will use for the rudder.
I put some mold release on the molds and after it dried i laid down a layer of the fiberglass cloth and wetted it out. I put three layers of cloth on each side of the rudder mold.
Tomorrow i will pull these rudder halves out of the mold sand /cut the edges and then put a stainless steel post on one side for the rudder post. Some epoxy will be mixed up and then the 2 halves will be epoxied together. The rudder should come out faired with minimal amount of work required to have it ready for use.
