More shots of the hull

Here she is on the scale. Looks like the keel/bulb is about 6 grams too heavy. I hope sanding and polishing the paint will reduce the weight these 6 grams. According to class rules, the keel/bulb shall not exceed 2500 grams.

I think the boat in sailing condition will be a tad heavy, class rules specify a minimum weight of 4000 grams. I think she will weigh in at 4160 grams. I will eventually get lighter batteries and this should help get it down to minimum weight.
