    Activity slowed down over the holidays, but a warm weekend seemed right for epoxy work. Now the bottom is on the boat - some pix are can be seen here:

      Now thinking about sail options and a (really) cheap trailer.

      Thanks for looking.

It reverses direction slightly 6 feet back from the bow, causing the sheer to have a bit of an "S" in it when I lay a batten along the nails I installed at the measured locations. Checked my measurements 3x and now am wondering if there is a typo on the dimensions in the plans in the book. Checked the message board, but did not see this come up. Any advice most appreciated.
