Hi
Finally got the keel epoxied up out of 1 x 2 x 8" and 2x 2 x 6" timber so the ply will land on the 8" timber, will be putting a 6" steel channel on bottom to cap off the keel which can be lowered and concerete keel added when she goes to sea. The canals have limited depth so a full keel will be a hinderance at this moment in time.
Have kept the keel level of 20ft and then 7ft the stern and 7ft6" at the bow. beam 10ft. So the size is a little bigger thn normal WW!
Have used a 2" scaffold tube for stern tube sandwitched between 3x 6x2"s. Have found bearings for 1" shaft.

Will get timber for frames cut up asap, and out of the weather which is getting worse and worse!!

Will send pics when i get chance to take them.
Yours James

Not yet - too cold.
No seriously waiting for the right time - life is a bit busy at the moment
may look upon it as therapy when I hit a time of grief, will be good to get out the house.
Plans still ruminate around my head and the numbers are still there.

Good luck with the project, we look forward to some pictures once you get started!

Very pleased with our Kubuto and 22 horses sounds about right!
