Working on centerboard-case.

The two halves of the centerboard-case are almost ready to be joined. I planned to coat the inner sides with coppercoat before joining, but in the end decided to wait and do it when I coat the whole underside of the boat.

I tried to figure out if it would be possible to fit the sheave assembly after joining of the halves. It seemed very difficult and probably impossible. I decided to fit the assembly before joining. I cut the sheave bolt to 7.4 cm, so it won't stick out on the outside of the case. The glass layer with which the case will be joined will close the bolt-hole. To make sure no epoxy will get stuck to the assembly I packed it in some plastic.
