It's a rainy night. I finished gluing the starboard cheek onto the rudder blade core. Port one will be done tomorrow. Thought I'd check my cleat collection, since Godfrey just gave me a cleat. It's the same design as the one that was the bow cleat, and he says it's not chrome, it's white bronze. It cleaned up well.
I know the new bow cleat is ugly, but it's strong like bull and that's more important to me than how it looks.
