    it sailed....

    corrector weight are at the keel, and they are too far forward. transom was out of the water almost 1/2" so I'll swap corrector weights with the battery and see how that works out...

    but it took on water as well. so I need to find that. not much wind so i'm thinking bow, keel or rudder.

    found some pin holes, about half a dozen or so. looked to be a result of over zealous sanding rather than poor layup. Looks like I gotta slap some primer on it first before the next wet run.

    Nicely done.
    Did I spot you using a keyboard stand for the line up of the keel and rudder?

    Nap.

    It was a throw-away at work. so I re purposed it. Its also my painting stand. I put some seat belt webbing on it works fine. uit does'nt have the rubber feet on it so I put a small sandbag on the leg to make it a bit more stable when its holding a boat. just nice to be able to work on a boat thats at work bench height...

    its still has the sticker on it. its a ks7190 singlex

    with the webbing on it I only have two available height positions, but its very functional for what I'm using it for. knowing that these can be had for less than 30 bucks It would be a great addition to a work shop... and in place of the webbing you could just tie a couple small ropes, like paracord to make a soft sling to hold the hull so its not resting on the cross bars. Its just barely deep enough to hold the iom with the keel on it...

    go back and look at th epic in post 94 you can see the stand (lower right corner) also doubles as an end support for my building board. one end of the board is clamped to the work bench and the other end is supported by the keyboard stand...

    I have also found the the tall skinny trash cans work well for supporting boats for the purposes of painting rigging, ect... I keep hoping that at work one day I'll find a suitable vessel for creating a float tank...

    first coat of primer and sanding... a light coat today and more sanding prior to color...

    so her is the b boat with a drawn on LWL. Its sitting about 1 cm down with the transom just barely touching this is with trim weigh full aft and battery behind the keel. so good for light air. but no good for heavy air.

    take a look at the bulb. it look slike it really far forward on the fin. I'm thinking if I cut in a new fin slot and move the fin forward about 4cm. it should help with the fore/aft trim. wich will allow me to get better trim with just the battery and to have the trim weight not so far aft.

    thoughts?
