We went onto installing the centerboard and this is when all hell broke loose.... There was no way we could get the pin through the case and the board....??????
I did some measurements and.... hmmmmmmm ....something is wrong here... Firstly the pin hole in the centerboard is about 10 mm out of place, secondly when I looked into the drawings there seems to be a mismatch between the case drawings and the board drawings (for details send me an email) so in total I was around 40 mm off the mark.
Well only one way to go, adapt to the situation. Fill the hole in the board and re drill, secondly modify the case......
Cut a slot in the forward centerboard case log to get the board further down
Filed out the pin hole
And filled it with epoxy
Will do a restart with the centerboard tomorrow......
Ended the day with a lot of glueing!
