Excellent product BUT : The holes for the screws should be offset so the screws don't clash, I had to use copper rivets. The fittings are for 3/4" stock and screws from either side will not work.
Classic Boat Supplies - Glenn's comment is most relevant to the smallest 3/4" kit, where even short screws may touch. A solution is to rivet as Glenn has done, or to angle 3/4" screws slightly. The issue does not affect wider rudder kits which have more space.
