New rudder for the Monty

When you are in the middle of a Raid and things go to pot, a rudder jury rigged from pieces of old plywood is a thing of beauty.  When you get back to a safe harbour maybe less so.  At least that's what Cody Horgan thought, and being a man of action he set to with some bits of nice Jarra discovered in John Young's stash.  When we caught up with him he was just applying the finishing touches to the new rudder,  peening the ends of copper nails over roves.  Thanks Cody!

Thanks also to Dennis Muscovich who is busy restoring the wooden grating on the Monty - see pics below.
