Keel Trunk Installation Jig


This is basically my bulb alignment jig that I simply modified to align the keel trunk
Once the trunk is cured into place, I will remove the cross beams of the jig and use this same jig to
align the rudder post.
I attached this jig to an old lathe bed to make sure itís in a perfect plane. Also makes it VERY stable.
Once everything is in alignment, I actually hot clue the boat to the jig.
By the way, the bulkeheads in the aft section are temporary and will be removed.
A drawing of this jig is on the Articles Page.
