is a Home made Rudder I built for her Boat
All Material for this Rudder was gleaned for free .
it is a 5/8" inch thick Poly Cutting Board from a discarded Counter top
the Tiller ( Handle ) is a Piece of Discarded Electrical Conduit
The Tiller is wrapped with a discarded used Bicycle Inner Tube
The Hinges are actually Door Hinges I gleaned from a discarded
The Nuts and Bolts were gleaned from discarded furniture and Bike parts .
Total cost of this Rudder = $ 0.00
Even a Used Rudder for this boat would cost $200 here in Portland Oregon .
SPECIALIZE your belongings
and teach yourself and others the skills to live an easier more efficient , and simple
Total cost of this Boat as of today ?
Still just $70
I paid $300 for it .
at 28 to 30MPG
it seems to make gas as it goes down the road
it runs perfect
and has brand new tires, battery , radiator, and all hoses and belts .
everything on it works fine .
POINT : You can live as cheap as you allow yourself .
New Car ? yeah and payments. and high tax on license fee's
and Insurance is high .
But you NEED a new Car ,,, right ?
You NEED IMAGE , right ?
No you don't , you just THINK you need Image .
Cool beans, Rog. Kisses to Beepers!

she invented that phrase in 1969.
The Beepers and I took out the boat to test that home made Rudder
result : IT WORKED BITCHEN BEANS
On our way back to the Marina
the Wind Came up and of course , it increased the Chop in
beepers was a Bit scared from all the bouncing .
We beached the Boat on the East end of the Island and played fetch
with a stick
she was so ecstatic man
she is all tuckered out now ,,, she watching her eyelids for a while .
