First, the canting keel:
Just kidding, of course!
My garage ceiling and hoist aren't quite high enough to get the keel shoved into the hole, but I gave it a whirl just in case it seemed like things could be "persuaded". No go, so today I've built a big ol gantry-slash-gallows in my driveway (neighbors gotta be wonder'n).
Got some vinyl. I thought white would look crisp against the paint.
Electrical install. So far it's just the stereo, a 12v plug, and a bilge pump. I'll run the trolling motor through a separate circuit with a fuse, apart from the house stuff.
Shoved the trailer under the boat while it was hanging up there, and rolled it outside for its first night under the stars. My shop is huge all of a sudden! Oh, and did I mention I put the name on it?
I received an update from the sailmaker, and he's got them on the floor now. I'm making some snazzy carbon headboards for the main, just because I can.
So tomorrow we see how well I built the gantry, and hopefully keel and boat become one.
