Centre Board Case

Next on my to-do list was the Centreboard Case. This is another component the designer suggests you build before you begin the hull. It also fits in my shed so I got stuck into it.

I completly painted the inside before I glued it all together, Its now finished waiting to go on the moulds. I found the best spot to keep the centreboard foundry pattern to stop it getting damaged is inside the case.…duh! the insites we have at 11pm.
