    Greetings all,

    Back to the garage! I finally installed the capping on both sides of the centerboard, lots of trimming to improve the fit and I think I could have done more. Hopefully no one will be seeing it. Strapped it down and started drilling countersink, shank and pilot holes.

    And it's down, except for the rear couple of screws, drill bits not long enough for the pilot holes so back to the tool store! Also decided to modify the design of the transition piece from the two caps to a single one. I'm not sure at all about bending that piece, so I'm shortening it up and will build up the thickness with lamination.

    So it was a productive day, decided to continue on with the belt sander to flatten out the rest of the ply/stem for the stem capping. Got to take advantage of Saturdays when loud working noises are hopefully accepted more than Sundays.

    Topped off with aluminum since I felt that bronze was too expensive.

    Two examples of me lightly modifying the design to suit my inadequacies.

    But my goofs decided to gang up on me...

    More later,

    Eric
