Stella update: new steering wheel

I had been looking for a long time for a new steering wheel, but never found one with the right diameter and the right looks. So I decided (again) to build one from scratch. A stainless steel bar bent around a wooden mould and spotwelded makes the frame. The rods supporting the handles were turned on the lathe and metric screw-thread was cut. The wooden handles I made on the woodturning lathe from some meranti leftovers. Pleased with the result!

Carolus Quinto

The Carolus Quinto is a bantry bay boat. It participated in several Atlantic Challenge competitions. It's now in our workshop for major repairs, including 25 new frames, some new planks, diagonal reinforcement and a lot of refastening.
