Add me to the list of the amazed Joe - I'd bet a lot of us think about doing something like this but less than 1% have the skill, drive, money and smarts to pull it off.

You did.... wow, congrats. Thanks for sharing the story too.

Still about the best thread ever, I reckon. Sweet as, bro.

Shee-it. Edged out by the republican thread within like 5 seconds.

Great story that stands up with time. Wonder how much it cost in scratch and time. ....?

1%? I'd say yer off by a factor of at least five decimal places, if not six. ;-)

How exactly did you attach that keel with the interior installed...?

Design leads to easy access to keel bolts with lifting the floor in the galley. Fabricated some 1/4 inch stainless backing plates several years ago and routered them into the mast step. Keel bolts go thru multiple laminations (24 inches total) of the mast step, frame, backbone and false keel stump before entering the lead keel where they are at alternating lengths between 36-64 inches long.

Just relaunched here in Kiwiland after 3 hectic weeks in the boat yard, yahoo another summer down under.
