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.
From RFC 1925: "(3) With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly overhead."
