Hello, I,m afraid Lorraine has gone to Davy Jones Locker.
Over the winter time i was unable to attend the workshop because of the cold. When I re emerged after hibernation, found the keel had twisted. Tried to correct this but it was to no avail. There was only one thing left to do, she was cut up.. Sad but never mind..
Lesson learnt, make the construction more rigid before taking a break.
Thanks to all the comments posted, appreciated..
Now returned to the Tarpon..
Many thanks to all.
