A Pivotal Moment

Saturday's installation of the centerboard was a pivotal moment for Gardens. After we spent a great deal of time sorting out the "how" of the installation, the actual "doing" was straight forward and done in short order.

Gardens sat patiently waiting. The centerboard, the case, the tools and the gadgets were prepped for the installation. Jan's help in moving the centerboard into the boat was invaluable. Elmer did the heavy lifting and lowering.

Decking is next...


  1. Nice work, sometimes a job that seems a bit intimidating comes out just right, I'm close to putting the "board into Long Steps, my current project. Its a bit bigger than that one but I'm not anticipating any problems. "Gardens" is looking nice, keep up the good work.

  2. Thanks, John. It takes me awhile to learn and remember life's lessons - like things that seem intimidating sometimes do come out just right,
