    Worked a bit in the keel this morning. Have to get the holes lined up for the skeg. Overdrilled so they can be filled with epoxy prior to installing the skeg. I got 5 of the 7 holes done today before it got too warm in the shed.

    Got all the holes drilled & gouged out. Managed NOT to cut all the way through! :D

    A good healthy coat of mold release was on the bolts and I stuffed them 'up' through the holes in the bottom of the keel. Taped them in place and backfilled the holes with epoxy & chopped strands.

    When these are setup tomorrow I'll pull the bolts & sand smooth. Inching every closer to installing the skeg.
