7. With the stuffing box slots cut out of the balsa keel, proceed to take the second keel doubler (KDR) and position it on top of the balsa keel aliening the slots and mark were the front of the keel doubler is on the balsa keel. Precede to coat with epoxy glue the balsa keel, taking care not to put glue into the stuffing box slots, up to the marked front of the keel douber. Once in position and the slots are aliened, weight can be place on the keel doubler to assure a good glue bond of the parts. This will complete the boxed keel and stem post assembly.
