Getting Closer to Finished

Here is my interpretation—in progress—of Riccelli's fin keel for the Stevenson Weekender. As noted in a couple of the shots below, I will have to make some adjustments. I say interpretation because for all my attempts at getting accurate measurements from the plans and then care in cutting, the skin didn't match the framework very well. I'm not sure where the discrepancy snuck in, but the fix is easy enough. This is just one more instance of "build to the work."

The post that forms the leading edge will be cut out of the portion of stock keel that will be removed when the boat is inverted in the near future. The trailing edge will also, most likely.
