measure at least twice, bond once

After multiple dry fittings Matt and Jerry have completed the permanent installation of the Sage 15 daggerboard trunk and interior liner.  Time was taken to assure the trunk was correctly aligned in the hull, port to starboard and bow to stern.

Once the trunk was bonded in place it is time for the liner to be set in place.

With the liner in place Matt will install a cockpit floor support bulkhead and stringers into the hull, and installing the interior accent teak (pictures to come).  Jerry has also started installing the deck hardware (pictures to come).
