The keel is beginning to take shape. It is nine segments of African Mahogany laminated together. I'm hand planning it down and will achieve a NACA 0012 profile. I feel like I've walked 6 miles, 6 feet at a time. The keel receives two layers of glass cloth and a maximum thickness of 2" is allowed, so I have a ways to go. The keel's final shape will be needed in the later portion of hull construction to template the keel box from.
