    Thanks for the shot of the airmar unit. I took a level and a trusty sliding t-bevel to the bottom and low and behold the dead rise is about 11 degrees. 12 degree is the ticket.

    Pulled out the rudder post and shaft log. Another rudder skeg is being fabricated at a local place out of 3/8 stainless. Couldn’t believe the rudder was solid bronze. Did some polishing and she looks pretty good. The original prop on it was a little bit tired. Have a spare 4 blade laying around.
    I wanted to ask a question. The fairing block for the shaft log and rudder logs were both wood that saw to much time and water. Should these replicated out of wood or is plastic like say azek a bad idea. I would have to say that plastic azek in theory seems like a better alternative. I was also considering IPE for both. I have a few scraps that are the correct sizes.
