Cutting keel box

In order for the deck piece to fit properly, the top of the keel box has to be cut to the proper height. This was accomplished by using the Dremel cutting wheel. You can also see in the photo a small piece of scrap epoxied fiberglass that will eventually by fitted on the top of the keel box with thickened epoxy to prevent water ingress from the keel box. Only a small hole will be in this 'cap' to allow the keel bolt to protrude into the cockpit where it will be fastened with a nut of some sort.
