Making a start on the rudder repairs and clearing off the old antifouling of the blade.

Now I have got the rudder fitting off the rudder blade, I can see the wear on the fitting, it could be resleeved or it may have to be remade on the end of the fitting.

The worn out fitting prior to removing it from the rudder.

Grinding back the bottom rudder fitting to expose the copper bar holding the fittting in place 

Blade almost clean of old antifouling  and ready for a quick sanding down and under water primer
