Design 165 – More Rocker

In finalizing the stability and ballast keel I added a little more rocker (curve) to the underwater profile, so that I could get the ballast keel where I wanted it.

This has resulted in changes to the following drawings:

165/003/001 – Profile. New plan is Issue 03.
165/003/005 – Stem. New plan is Issue 02.
165/005/001 – Centrecase. New plan is Issue 02.
165/005/002 – Centreboard. New plan is Issue 02.
165/005/004 – Centreboard Pivot. New plan is Issue 02.

It is important that builders download the new plans. For any builder who has laminated the old-style stem, there is a change drawing available to modify the final part of the stem and a special forward deadwood..

This now allows us to finalize the ballast keel, deadwoods, sail plan and rig.
