Re: Strip: Bjorn Thomasson HUNTER project start

Thanks for the image Bjorn. I often thought about a roped skeg. I like the idea of easy repair, and cable is not the ideal multi use item to have as a spare, and not easy to acquire on the go. I would probably go for a bungie system, rope up, bungie down, but I shudder to think what might happen if the rope were to become jammed or disconnected. Permanent deployed skeg. Still, that could happen with a cable system too. I guess that is why we carry duck tape, just tape the miscreant in if necessary.

In the end I will probably go with my hinged cable system. The only real downside of that method is that one cannot use a slot to the skeg hole to install it. At whatever angle the slot is cut, the skeg wants to slide off the axel going up or going down. So the pin has to go through the casing.

If anyone can come up with a design to overcome this I would be QUITE interested to see it. I am going to ponder it some more: thinking in terms of a fixed pin in the skeg and grooves in the casing.
