Rudder skeg

Posted: 26 Mar 2015 - By: Jose & Jules (Fubbs) Lamas

Our Rival 41 is currently out of the water and while checking for play in the rudder (there is none) I have noticed that If I push and pull at the bottom of the skeg quite hard there is a small ammount of movement, there is also a faint clicking noise. There are no cracks or visible damage at the skeg hull join. The movement is small and it seems come from flexing of the skeg.  Does anyone know if this is normal or a cause for concern? How is the skeg attached to the hull, is it part of the initial mold or is it attached later and how?
