Cleaning and Reassembly111 viewsI disassembled the boat in the fall of 2010 as the trampoline needed sewing. Here I have cleaned the port (lower in the picture) hull and you can see the difference.

Move the port hull into place236 viewsDon't forget to silicon the holes and then drop the crossbars into place. I had the bolts already dropped into the crossbars before assembly so I did not have to remove the end covers or disturb the anti-crush plates.

Daggerboard details119 viewsNote the loop on the top of the daggerboard. Sized to hold the board flush to the bottom of the hull when hooked on the trapeze wire handle.
Also note the tygon hose wrapped shock cord behind the daggerboard. When the daggerboard is dropped, the elastic/hose is pulled over the top of the daggerboard and squeezes it against the inside of the daggerboard slot. This holds it in place wherever you position it.
