    Hi All

    Does anyone have any tips on how to make sure the rudder is installed perfectly straight? I started measuring up today to do the install.

    I found that to be one of the harder things to do. Actually its a pain in the ass if you've never done it before. I'm assuming using regular drills aren't the way to go... since they make holes not very inaccurate.

    I'm going to start with a 0.3 mm dremel. Hopefully that'll do the trick.

    These are awesome for getting precision holes started, and cheap too!

    Taking deep breathes yet? Drilling the holes is nerve racking.

    Thanks, they took a bit of time to make but seeings how this is my first try at building a boat I think this way has the least margin for error.

    I'll keep the pics coming.

    Finally grew a set and drilled the holes for the drives, was a lot trickier than I thought. I ended up honing the holes to size by hand to get the pefict fit.

    I was using long straight edge pressed up against the inside of the sponson and took measurements at two points on the drive tube.
