Re: Crack in skegg in line with the lower edge of pintle see photos

It looks like only a fiberglass problem.
However, I would check the rudder stops at the quadrant.
Possibly one is loose.
Otherwise, something might have gotten jammed in there and when the rudder went hard to port it broke the glass.
Just a guess.

Subject: [AmelYachtOwners] Crack in skegg in line with the lower edge of pintle see photos
I am not sure what to do about this one - hopefully someone can advise me.
The boat came out of the water yesterday and this crack was noticed.
Maybe zoom in a bit.
The second photo shows the crack about 10mm below the paint scraper sharp edge and in line with the pintle.
Obviously it needs fixing - before I go back into the water.
How could this happen?
Have other boats had this problem & fixed it successfully?
