Atlantic Engineering

Back on the pace, after the third and hopefully final fix for their rudder. After two attempts to jury-rig the broken pin holding the rudder to the boat, the Row4Ocean team decided to employ some time and a major engineering effort on the 23rd day of the record breaking attempt to row the Atlantic Ocean. The fix included shortening the rudder blade to get rid of the damaged area and using nuts and bolts on board to make a solid fix between the rudder and the rudder stock. The fix was a team effort but the engineering experience of Matt Wilds was essential.
