rudder skeg on S2 11.0a - two piece?

Recommended Posts

I bought this boat this fall and it is now on the hard for the winter and I got a look at the bottom. I noticed this crack and missing gelcoat(?) on what looks like iron? Is the bottom 1/3 of the skeg a bolted on iron bearing frame? Is this cracking fix a matter of fairing and barrier coat?

Thoughts?

Almost certainly what you have is a "cup" of metal that is thru bolted to a stub of GRP. This is a common way to support the lower pintle. Chip off all the fairing, you'll find the flat head bolts, usually tapped into the other side of the 'cup'. Apply some force to the cup, see if you can move it  - if so, you'll have to remove it & re-set it on the stub.
