Dudley Dix – Cape Henry 21: Keel

The last couple of days I’ve been removing deadwood from the keel so she will be built to Dudley Dix specs. I’ve also had to cut 4″ off the top of the outboard motor bracket so the prop will be at the right depth so there will be no cavitation. The keel was built so wide water couldn’t pass thru the propeller.

I have a few more stages to go to complete this last fix then “Slough Coot” will be ready to launch.
