587Hrs – Dry Fitting Keelstrips

    OK, so you’re just going to put some Sika (or something similar) between the strips and the keel? Does that stuff stay elastic or otherwise dependable for the lifetime of the strips? If you wanted to be extra sure, you probably could seal the screwholes with epoxy in a similar manner as the tiller attachment holes. I’m not sure whether that would be unnecessary caution, but I’m just allergic to any holes penetrating the fiberglass below the waterline…

    It looks good. But yes, Matti is right, try to seal them: You could easily pour epoxy glu in the screw holes before screwing the strip.
