Hello all, I am trying to lash a rudder onto a kayak I just built. I understand how to start the lashing (one end has a stop knot) . I understand how to weave the Wharram hing .I just don't know how to finish of the other end? Do you go aroud the top loop or what? I wonder if one of you can post a photo ,thanks ...Kevin

Hi Kevin,

Just another stop knot is the usual way. Pull all the lashing as tight as you can so there is no slack, then tie a stopper knot that is right up against the stern or rudder as the case may be.

OK, Seems like it would be hard to pull a stop knot tight but I'll give it a try ,thank you... Kevin

It's a usual procedure to inject epoxy into, at least, the starting and finishing holes. I did so into all the holes on the stem side on my boat for waterproofing. The rudder holes are drilled thru an epoxy inlay, so they are waterproof as is. . .
