Hey all

Novice builder actually first time build going to try my hand at this I choose the constitution because as a novice I believe I can do this out of the box and follow the instructions

Build is subscription over 24 months from Australia so without any more intro we commission the dockyards open

Lord have mercy on the poor solesCursing

Hello Thechook looks great so farBigGrin, you might want to build a jig to keep the keel straight, as it may warp over time. Looking forward to seeing your build.Cool

My standard dry dock is a 1000x250x20mm section of MDF with good quality angled brackets.... Has done me well for many builds.....

You should aim for around 5 or six brackets per side. Firstly draw a line down the centre of your board and use this line to lay the keel along.

Before fitting the angle brackets check they are at a true 90 degree angle then screw them in position along one side making sure they are in a straight line and they do not go above the keel where the 1st false deck is to be fitted in place. You may need to shorten the upright arm to fit also do not fit them so they will fowl any frames when they are fitted to the false keel .

Next place the keel in position on the board and add the angle brackets to the other side so the keel is held straight but can still be removed from the dry dock if necessary.
