Do you consider the rudder in the picture below to be skeg-hung?
It seems a spade/skeg hybrid to me. The "skeg" (if that's what it is) doesn't fully protect the rudder, but it does seem to add some strength to the attachment set-up.
, it is still a skeg, so.. yes, I'd say it was skeg-hung.
A spade rudder has no hull attachment points whatsoever.
