Near Completion  Moving out of the shop  Ready to Launch  In the water

 
 

When the first part of the lamination was finished the new keel was moved by hoist to the shop below where it was planed to the proper thickness. From here it went back to the loft where additional white oak was laminated in place to create a structure where pockets could be made to accept the new ribs. This solid construction replaced the galvanized nail fastened " cheek blocks " that were used on the original keel.
