I now had to flip over the boat. This action is turning out to be somewhat problematic since I can't do it myself. Because there are seldom any people around who could help me (or any people period) I have to time the "flipping" when my wife is around. The boat is getting a little heavier with each step, so I hope she can continue to help me with this.

The skeg is the "fin" in the bottom of the stern that helps the boat track properly. Installing it is a fairly straightforward procedure:
I've marked the skeg position and also where the four screws go. They are drilled from the top, then I went underneath to drill counter sunk holes.
