A first try.

This is my first attempt to post an entry to the vmss website blog.  So it's really just a test.  But just to add interest, I'm going to try to add a picture of the work that I'm doing today on my "A" class.  I have been trying to fair in the demountable keel to the hull by putting a piece of waxed .020 in. styrene in the joint, adding epoxy filler to both sides, and then sanding back both the filler and the styrene to get a fair joint.  The styrene is intended to peel clean off the epoxy to allow the joint to split again, and then both sides should meet very closely when the keel is remounted. That is 40 lbs of lead on the front of the keel.
