  • Skipjack question

    I made a slight error on assembling my Skipjack. I need to buy more cardstock to secure the forward part of the hull. What is the thickness of the supplied cardstock? My calipers are not that accurate.

    Thank you,
    Farlan

      .030 - .040 inch will do it.

          Next question.....I'm having issues attaching the upper hull to the lower hull. I slide the upper hull over the front radial flange and am having trouble lining up the indexing pins on the upper and lower hull. Are the indexing pins to be removed?????????

          Thanks again

            Not removed. Shortened. A little at a time till the pins fit the holes. Patience!
