A lot of measuring and leveling and straightening and I THINK I have the symmetry issue narrowed down to exactly 3/4" on frame E. My plan is to just add that to the gunwale on the starboard side. I don't think it will be visible at all and no way you could feel the difference either. Yay. :D

I have been doing a ton of reasearch and am starting to get a grasp of the rigging hardware I need and almost understand it enough to be able to ask questions! Somebody suggested the book "Rig Your Dinghy Right" great book but most of it is over my head. There have been some really nice pictures tho. :oops:

I did get the chainplate backing and the bow and stern eye reinforcement epoxied in.

I still have some rigging questions I need answers for and I have 2 more reinforcement areas I already know about that need to be installed.

Just cause you get the boat on the water and sail away, don't forget to come back and post pictures of your beautiful boat on the water! :D

Thanks for the reminder Orange Quest, but I am still a long ways from splashing this one.

My total lack of sailing and rigging knowledge has been a much bigger obstacle than I expected.

I mean it when I say that Jeff taking my calls and Jacques willingness to address my myriad of questions mostly caused by my total lack of sailing knowledge has been a a very big deal! Shoot, Jeff has done everything but read me a bedtime story to help me over this hurdle!.
