First I needed to mark up the rudder stock and tube for where the flange will sit, the position of the blade and the approximate position of each tang.

|No seagull poop comments please.|
The flange hadn't looked 100% square on the tube when I'd finished welding it but fortunately, back at the ranch,I could see the GRP on the boat had a slight slope on it, so more by luck than judgement, the flange fitted perfectly.
