Postby banba » Sat Mar 08, 2014 7:06 am

HI, I am helping my son withe the "rock the boat" project and we are not clear about how to attach the keel. The pictures are not clear. Do you squeeze the cut pieces of soda bottle together and try to attach? Please help! pictures would be amazing!

Hi banba,

I'm sorry to hear that you are having trouble with the bilge keels. Here is a link to a PDF with a picture of how I would attach the bilge keels.

Let me know if things still are still confusing, and we'll try to clear things up.

Happy sailing!
All the best,
Terik
