Skeg Repair in South Central Minnesota

6 posts in this topic

My Dad is bringing his boat on our group trip to Canada this fall. It has a new 2006 60hp tiller with a missing skeg. He took it off a week after he got the boat.

The steering has a wicked turn to the left when you let go of the handle. My Dad is not good about keeping his eye on the water and hand on the tiller handle. He has almost tossed me out of the boat more then once while digging for a sandwich.

I am going to make him put a new skeg on before the Canada trip. Any good shops that can do the job in South Central Minnesota? He lives in the Mankato area. Otherwise I will bring the boat up to the metro area....so any suggetions up here would be helpful as well.

Thanks guys!

I got mine fixed at Ickler in St. Cloud. They did a great job. Very reasonable.

I moved from the area several years ago but there was a welding shop(can't remember the name) on the corner of Webster Ave and Range St. in North Mankato. They did lots of that type work, prop and skeg repair and replacement. If it's still there it would be a good place to try. Good luck. Old Sneller

I had skeg on my I/O repaired a couple of years ago at a welding shop on south side of Waseca. This shop also repaired props. Can't remember the name, but sure it is the book.

      Stick in mud, any sightings of perch in your area at all this winter?  Just curious, if there are any year classes making it to adulthood.

      Flash, welcome to FM!   I asked a coworker this morning about Cass for you.  He has a cabin there and fishes it weekly year round. As far as colors go, he said natural colors.  Gold, silver, browns, oranges as well as glow green are the best in that order. Reds, chartreuse and red/pink glows are lowest on the list. Obviously transition areas tend to be the best locations.  Deep vs shallow tends to be day to day season long. Hope this helps some.

      Naw, heard from others that he was just bored and kept checking everyone that was out that night.

      Had a CO come out to our shack two years ago on a pretty cold night, just as we were sitting down for dinner, & that SOB just stood in the doorway, left the door wide open as he checked all of our licenses...  all the heat in the house GONE, our food went cold, give our licenses back, then on to the next shack--- No smile, no nothing, guy had zero empathy or consideration for anything it seemed.   Its basically the golden rule though> just treat others the way you want to be treated.  Just don't be a dick.

      Great fishing everywhere?  Please give me the resorts and depths of the great fishing as that will help me decide where to go.
