The rudder was laid up in the mold again, and some wetted fiberglass cloth was twisted up to stiffen the rudder. Some epoxy mixed with adhesive was made thick and with a syringe was squirted along the edges. The molds were then stuck together and clamped tight. I will see how the rudder turns out tomorrow ABOVE - rudder post (stainless steel rod, bent to better hold in the rudder) affixed to half of the molded rudder.

BELOW - you can bearly see the twisted wetted fiberglass cloth that will add stiffness to the rudder.

ABOVE - A better shot of the bend in the rudder shaft and the epoxy used to hold it together.
BELOW - Both halves, before joining and clamping.
