      I posted some more pictures under Mike's piccup album.

      I had researched the pivot bolt location early on and I think because it is so close to the seam and because the lower guard is somewhat narrow compared to the other boat designs I think putting it thru the panel gives it the strongest amount of resistance and I liked the other idea that was mentioned about backing it up with smaller pieces of plywood on the inside to spread the load.

      Glassing leeboard, varnishing tiller /rudder assembly and working on mast yard and boom. Hope to have it altogether by weekend.

I concluded it will depend a lot of the vertical position you bolt the upper guard to hull and the final format you give to it. Mine was just right (by chance).
