October 2007

Time to fit the sterntube, having had it sitting on the bench for the best part of two months. Here's how I'd left the hull. Rough sawn hole in teh hull

First job was to clear these two bukkheads to allow the sterntube to pass.
So out with the trusty hole saw and the Dremel. Hole in the bulkhead

Eh Voila... Stern tube installed

Although it took a fair bit of fettling to get it to line up centrally in all the buklkhead holes. Sterntube installed
