Steady Progress

August 2, 2012 – Today I cut the final slot involved in the daggerboard trunk installation. This was the carefully marked slot in the midseat top. It came out very well – defined as: it fits over the trunk properly and I don’t have to make a new seat! In the photos below you can see the daggerboard doing its thing keeping the boat on course, and my hand illustrating how the board can be raised or lowered in the slot.

I also began varnishing the mast, continued varnishing the daggerboard and rudder, and put a second coat of epoxy on the removable floor. Tomorrow – rubrails!

Stay tuned for more pics!
