*This* is not a fun boat project; this is a picture of the rudder shaft (where the rudder leaves the hull and goes into the water). And it’s leaking. To get to this shaft you have to empty half the boat and crawl into a coffin-sized locker that is underneath the cockpit. I took a picture of Jon in there, but I am not allowed to post it (something about “unflattering angles” :P). The good news is that once Jon cranked down on the bolts, the leaking did subside a little — bilge pump running only once a day (instead of every 30 minutes!!!).
