23rd to 30th Sep 2010

I decided that, as there was a good chance that the whole project would turn out to be too much to cope with, I would start with a small component and see if it put me off before I invested significant time and money. The centreboard turns out to be not so small at 2m long and 75mm thick. I had also decided to put 70kg of ballast inside it so this was an added complication.
