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.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
