Big Hole in Hull

Huge hole in my hull!

Yes, I cut the hole for the off-Centreboard (ie. the keel). The centreboard just fits, though it is a little tight. There are going to be scratch marks down the edge of the woodwork, despite my hours of laborious surface finishing. Oh well.

At least it goes in and out okay.

  1. I've sprayed the off-centreboard with silicon lube and it goes in fantastically. I was going to rebuild the box but think I'll just go with the lube. Problem is, it's an easy job to do a rebuild now while the deck isn't on. It's a major pain once the deck is on.
