    Is this the arm that comes out at a right angle from the top of the rudder? Haven't seen that design before.
    The pin goes through the hole in the rudder and the tiller pole attaches in the slot?
    If that's right, it looks like a smaller connection than I would have thought necessary to turn the rudder when sailing at speed. Does that mean there is not a lot of press on the rudder? Or just that it is stronger than it looks?

    You are right about what it is. This is for the 21 ft Åfjordsboat. The åttring has a larger one. To be honest its 5 cm shorter than the original. The simple reason is that my chainsaw got to greedy while cutting it from a larger piece 😁 The preassure on the rudder is no problem on this small boat. We decided to call it a racing-rudder-tounge 😂

    How is the pin (tappen) fastened on the other side of the hole through the rudder? A plate with a forked notch or a plugg through a hole in the pin ( altså, en klemme rundt tappen eller en lås gjennom tappen.)
    I'm curious about support so the arm doesn't move around in the hole through the rudder.

    In the late 1800 a new design for a fishing wessel was designed and buildt in Bodø, called Bodø-båten. The goal was to have a safer boat and more efficient boat than the Nordlandsboats. There were buildt around 30 boats of this type in Bodø, but then the motor boats came and took over, so it had a short era. There are no boats left of this design. The boat is around 40 ft. long lapstrake buildt.

    We hope to get a boat like this buildt one day!

    Sweet! Appears to have been inspired by the English Cutters that were imported to Norway around that time.

    You might be right Lagspiller, but they used lapstrake, that was the known building method. But I hear some were made carvel too...

    Here is another photo of Bodøbåten ready to be launched at Bodø shipyard around year 1900. We have started a project and hope to get finaces to build Bodøbåten. We will need sponsors and public support, so its not guarantied she will be buildt yet. If the project gets going, all will be documented and shared on social media, and youtube,,, and ofcourse WBF :-)

    One more evening in the costal federation boatshed. Rudder asembly for the Åfjordboat almost complete. The "rudder-tounge is roughly shaped for several reason. The old one had a rough finish, Birch is hard to get smooth with hand tools, and we did not feel like shaping with power tool for this 100 year old boat. Also working on a birch hook for a new oarlock. We also glued some parts for some wooden blocks for the Åfjordboat.

    Good job! Looks great!
    Haven't seen keip in birch before, but its reasonable when I think about it. Not a lot of oak growing in Bødo.

    I think the original was made of spruce. Birch is not wery rot resistant, but used as "keip" and only treated with oil and tar, I guess they will hold some years. But I will collect some new hooks to have some replacement.
