    Got my skeg work done. Needs to be straightened out on the bottom and new torque tab added. Has same dimensions as a sportmaster but the angle may not be the same.

    That should work, just make sure its strait.

    The stock omc skeg with a torque tab looks like this at speed, not good....

    Thanks for the advice Baja. Guess I'm gonna have to run it to know what I've got. I can see that motor cranked to right steer. That's a common trick a lot of people have to use to stay hooked up. Hope this mod can let me track straighter!

    is it just me or does the cone on that look off?...might just be an optical illusion but it looks like the cone was put on slightly higher than the bullet....

    It's about 1/4" higher than midline on the shaft. Supposed to add a little more lift. I have been running it this way and had no problems. I think what's making it look higher is where they took off some of the fairing on the bottom to make the weld. There are some sanding marks at the top that add to the illusion. It's just an illusion.

    Good thing I've done construction work most of my life! I'm used to doing things by myself.
