Soling Finally Built

Finally got my Soiling 1m built and in the water for the 1st time to do a leak test.
Only paint i have on it right now is the hatch cover. Being a full time RVr i did not have access to many power tools except my dremel and small drill. I built this by hand without a jig. The keel and rudder are straight in line. (used the pic posted using the stand, 2 paint sticks and clamps, worked great) Weight as it is in the 1st pic is 10lb 2oz. As i did not have shot i did order the finished keel from Victor.

The transom has been filled and sanded smooth, glass lined in the hull, fwd and mid section. After 2 hours on the water i have 0 leaks. YAY i musta done it right. What adjustable boom vang do y'all use? I dont like the one that came with the kit.

Painted my boat, hatch covers. No sanding yet as it still needs to gas out and 1 more coat. Going to leave white below the water line. After the second coat and clear coat, going to put some stripe around the top lip. Still a work in progress. It sails nice.
