    We need someone who is a CAD expert to do some computer work on the “Elliptical Rudders” pages.

    http://www.olson30.org/boat-setup/rudders

    We have some autocad sections of an e-rudder but they are not very well set up for a non-CAD person to use. What we need is someone to take the DWG file and convert it to a bunch of PDF files at 1:1 scale so someone could make an elliptical rudder from the drawings.

    Any volunteers?

    I’m mot an expert but do have a copy of TurboCad 14 which can read AutoCAD files and output PDF files. So far I have only printed some relatively simple drawings as PDFs but expect to be able to do it (with some review of the training course I have) if you can’t find an expert.

    Thanks Doug. Not sure if ‘expert’ was the right or wrong way to phrase it. I can open the files also but what needs to be done is for the stations to be labelled and dimensioned, and there are some small issues with the sections that need to be looked at. We can send the dwg files to you.
