Where's the beef?

Thread starter #1
While restoring the rudder on my 76 fish I was suprised that there is no backing plate inside the hull. I was expecting to find at least a loose one lying in there. Since I cut the first access hole I don't think any previous owner has been in it.
Anyway when I finish it will be a big improvement over the eyescrews and bolt for a pintle that were on it.
