tail attached

One of the things we wanted to accomplish today was to drill the holes for the tail. After setting everything in place, measuring tip to nose, tip to fin etc. the holes were marked and drilled.



The back part of the stabilizer is held in place by two "spoon bolts". These bolts are original which is pretty neat.



The front of the stabilizer is held in place with two U bolts.






We also drilled the holes for the fin. Here, Glen Marsh holds the rudder in place.



More soon
