Default Rudder Fwd Horn Rivets

I'm starting to rivet my second rudder together today, but I have a question about the final riveting of the horn. The plans have you match drill one hole in the right skin. However, there is no instruction to match drill the hole in the left skin using the right skin. In my first botched rudder build I finished the horn out as shown in the picture below.

Should I be match drilling the left skin as well? There is a hole in the right skin.

Pet peeve: "Lose" (rhymes with "booze") is the opposite of "find". "Loose" (rhymes with "juice") means "not tight".

You had it right on the first rudder. 5 rivets on that face. Page 07-12 fig2. The unused hole in the left skin could be because they are identical skins until the bend is made to create a right and left skin.

Thanks. That makes sense. I will build with five rivets then.
