Keels and Casting

DougCasting, Keels, Steel Boat

I finally got the keel patched and put the crew to work doing the nastiest job of the year.  During the last few years of construction the keels have been collecting inches of grinding dust, plasma dust, weld spatter, tools, leaves and other assorted trash.  Just add water and you get the picture.  Now we wait for them to dry and they’ll be ready of lead.  Mean while we are back to casting deadlights for the portholes.
