The rudder is easy enough - drill a hole, ream it out, screw the rudder tube in place. For a change, I haven't needed to mess with the length of this as the hull is so thick at this point it more then covers the plain section of the tube.
Fitting the prop tube is a little tougher. I've elected to use a 60mm plastic propeller for a few reasons:
- It's bright red and matches the hull (sort of)
- I had it to hand
- I like the cartoony idea of an oversize prop under this boat
One challenge will be shortening the shaft. 6 inch is the shortest one available and I reckon I need half that. Time to get the tube cutter out!
