Test Assembling / Installing the Rudder

Posted by Zachary Wiest in Electrical, Modifications

It has been ages since I posted, and I am sorry for that.  I was out of the country again and then had a bunch of guys come through for 5 days.  Anyways, I am back to work on the Skerry.  I test assembled the rudder and took some pictures so that you could see my modifications to allow for the trolling motor.  Once I put the other side on I side, “heck, why not try to hang this thing on the hull.”  Aligning the gudgeons and pintles is a daunting task.  I spent over 90 minutes trying to get it right.  It is isn’t perfect, but this isn’t the final install.  I just wanted to get an idea for how it will all go.
