Fitting the keel blade

Had some trouble fitting the keel blade to the keel trunk. Hew came over last night and helped Al & I work on this problem. Seems some how that something inside the trunk is not allowing the keel blade to fit properly. We sanded and filed the blade and we could not get it to fit properly, it rocked back and forth.

Eventually we mixed up some thickened epoxy and put it at the top of the keel truck, after wrapping the keel blade with plastic wrap so it won't stick.

Stay tuned tomorrow to see if this fix works!

Here are a few pictures of the keel blade in the truck on the hull.
