Afternoon work

Shoe came over and we tilted the boat and chocked her in position with spare trailer tires. This angle gives me about 1″ at bottom of lee board to spare. 



No, the lee board didn’t fit! I spent a couple of hours installing/uninstalling lee board and upper mount over and over till I finally got it working right. This is typical for this kind of lee board; at least for me!




Looks like I got the angle on the lower mount right to feed into the upper slot. Also note filler 3/4″ x 1″ woon piece under grip wale. This for through bolts to fasten the upper mount. Good clearance in slot to lee board for epoxy sealer and paint without binding I think…not too sloppy anyway.


Another view of same…IMG_20160514_161224529-001



Epoxied in the anchor well drains. Masking tape makes it hard to see well. After it sets up I will take another photo. Maybe you can see what I was talking about anyway…
