just a note. I think screws/nails would have been a good options to keep in place. The keel did move about 25mm (1inch) to the left to stern and to the right toward the bow. Had i not been checking it very reg it could have been a painful mistake. It worked well in the end i just had to watch it until the epoxy was more tacky.

then to fillet it on. I used a small radius as it is not a large keel and no glass. As someone said in another build, If it falls off the boat is easy enough to flip and add another. Image[/URL]

The next step is to sand this layer smooth (240+ is the recommendation) and start top coating.
Also Photo bucket is not hosting for free, so I started Image shack but it appear that you only get a short free period as well.
It has been recommended to start a gallery here but i have looked around and cannot figure it out. Can anyone spell it out in luddite terms or share a link on where it has been explained elsewhere?
