I've been putting it off for a while now but I decided I would attach the skeg today. The reason for putting it off is because it involved laying on my back in a tight hole under the boat doing inverted welding. Not the most appealing of jobs you will agree.
Setting the job up simply involved using a plumb bob from the center of the top bearing hole.
This will only work if the boat is level which if you remember I did at the beginning. This is the top tip of this blog I think if you are going to build a boat like this. It's made so many jobs easy to either set up or do.
The weld is of 3 passes on both outer flanges and 1 pass on the inner flanges and 3 pass weld on the outer rear and one on the inner.
So thats another 'orrible job done and surprisingly few burns but very dirty hair and face.
