Your humble author also settled in with a summery libation called a Ferrari (one part Amaretto, two parts dry vermouth):
|Ferrari: very refreshing!|
The following day found no mis-steps or disasters and so we pressed on.
The plan calls for the bottom's buttstraps to be sized based on the finished dimensions of the centercase, but the center case can take different dimensions based on the builder's choices. So I made my choices, including the addition of outdoor carpeting as a liner based on recent forum discussions. Those discussions also led my to substitute hardwood in two places where the centercase sees abuse from the centerboard. Finally, there were bulkheads that needed to be flipped and frames applied to their opposite sides, and the tiller/rudder box assembly. Oh yeah, I really wanted to get the hull bottom assembled while I still had the basement free from video game zombies...
