Kort or prop shaft first?
« on: September 25, 2010, 04:06:08 PM »

Some advise please. I am busy measuring up to fit a steerable kort and prop shaft to my Eskgarth tug.
I intend using a disc on the prop shaft make the final adjustments. However which one do I drill and put in place first to use as a reference point? I will also have to build up an area at the end of the keel to take the kort support but this should be no problem.
Thanks Allan :(( :((

Its normal to drill the holes for the propshaft first.

Put a motor on the end to help ascertain the position and angle of the prop shaft then position the kort.

Do not fix anything till everything is in position.
