    It's very satisfying to see the centerboard trunk, built long ago, drop right in.

    Stephen,
    Thank you for all the pictures. Please keep them coming. This is SO much fun to watch, and you make it look so easy. Maybe others will be inspired.

    What he said. Maybe you will hold a holiday open house? If you hold it we would come. I'll even bring eggnog and nutmeg!

    Open house is a fun idea.
    Tom, just the usual epoxy cure time monitoring. I bought that thermo/hygrometer for the other shop which is very dank and I was running a dehumidifier.
    I could dry fit and remeasure forever but at some point...

    I did a little test of 6 oz fiberglass tape versus 4.4 oz biax carbon. A blindfolded team of composite specialists deemed the carbon stiffer!

    Outboard compartments are the water ballast tanks.

    Great seeing this project coming along!
    Nice work!
    What is the volume of the water ballast tanks?
