first silver soldering attempt
well, figured I would save a buck and try to make a static danforth anchor for my lobster boat, I know its missing some detail but it doesn't look horrible, I soldered sheets of brass together to get the desired thickness and I cut a slat in a piece of tubing to solder everything together, I would say its a success! still needs a light sanding and a coat of paint!

I am also in the process of building a lobster boat. The hull is completed and the motor, electronics and running gear are all installed. Like you guys, in an effort to try and save some money I made my rudder in much the same way, only I used a piece of scrap 1/2" copper tubing that I split with a hacksaw and flattened with a hammer, cleaned up with a file and some sandpaper and soldered to a piece of brass tubing that I am using for a rudder post. It came out great! Very realistic looking. In the next few days I will try to get some picture of my progress so far. I am not that great with the camera or the computer, so bear with me.
