I’m going to leave you with a few photos without adding too much text. This is an exciting time because I’m testing the rig and keel. I was surprised how easy it was to insert the keel and add the second weight. Perhaps this was due in part to spraying the keel with silicone wax.
I shall have to make adjustments to the lining up of the keel weights. How they came to be out of line, I cannot imagine. I feel sure they were in line when I was making the keel. A friend has suggested how I can get the weights to line up. That could be number one priority for tomorrow - if I can find time for boat building.
As far as I can tell, I’ve finished the boat, with the exception of sorting out a better reefing system and lining up the keel weights. I’ll probably opt for a leach downhaul plus independent sail ties through cringles along the reefing line.
