Thought this might be interesting, since I basically am doing this by following the other blogs, and the instructions/plans don't tell you how to. The slot for the keel is made by wrapping some plastic around your keel, then glassing over that to form a keel-shaped tube that will become the keel slot in the bottom of your boat.

Ok, I'm sorry I've been taking so long, but I finally broke down and borrowed my bosses' work camera so I can show you guys a little of where I'm at.
Of course, it would help if I knew how to turn on the flash!
Those were taken april 8th. This is where I'm at now.
I found out I had marked the center of frame 18 wrong, almost tweaked the nose of the boat the wrong way by 1/2"!!
You can see some really sloppy fillets in between those pieces of pipe. I would have been a little more careful, but I have a secret sander that should take them down smooth real quick and easy.
Next couple of days should be more bog, as I get ready to tape all my seams. I'm also re-finishing my keel, I had some delamination ( don't use black paint in the summer!) after which It'll get its final paint job.
Well that's all for now, g'night folks!
