finishing touches on the centerboard cases.

I wanted to launch with the centerboards in place so that reminded me that I hadn't drilled the holes for the guide pulleys and the 1 inch stop bolt.

Drilling extra long holes required extra long drill bits so I had to use the TIG welder to add on to the shanks of the bits.

Here's the centerboard control block that contains the guide pulleys for the lines that control the boards.

drilled the holes....

now the 1 inch diameter stainless steel bolt that provides a stop for the boards

since it's a cat........I had to do the other side.
