Epoxied the Transducer yesterday.

Added a small bead of 3M4000 around the top of the rubrail where it touches the hull. Still need to add some on the bottom of rubrail.

Started to fix keel...

Will add a layer of fiberglass over the fairing and then add a few layers of barrier coat....(weather/temperature permitting... right now borderline).

Need to replace deck connector for mast electric (and plug at mast).

Wow, what exactly took a bite out of your keel? Did that happen as the result of a grounding, or perhaps a yard or trailer related incident?

You might want to check your keel bolts to make sure they have not loosened.

No all is well. No leaks or stress cracks in the hull... Happened on the last race (pre-start) hit a rock at relatively low speed...
