Rudder | Installing Pivot Eyes (2)

I sat the rudder against the transom, at its correct height, and marked up the location of the two pivot eyes.

Here I am drilling the hole for the lower eye. I used a pencil line to guide drilling at the correct angle, as I did on the keel.

As with the keel eye I again used 3M 5200 adhesive sealant to secure and seal the eyes. This is the lower eye.

And this is the upper eye.

Very smart!
