the bow is slightly diving in reach and it has some difficulty to jibe,

Update 17/05/18:
Added some pictures of the keel and rudder.
For the rudder pin I used M4x30 stainless steel bolt screwed to the rudder holder from bellow , I put a 6mm OD, 4mm ID stainless steel tube in the rudder for free movment.
For the keel I used a 400 grams lead fishing weight that I drilled in it to fix it with a M4 screw that goes to M4 nut that I put in the keel top.

Great model! To make it even better alignment notches and pins on the faces of the hull parts to be glued together would be a great help in assembling the hull. Also that would improve the overall strength of the hull at the glue joints.
Thanks for the great work!

thanks for the nice words and the great tips..
i will remember it for the next project

hello, congratulations on your sailboat.
I started to build one but I have some problems. I would like to know how you made the rudder pin and the keel bulb. I think I build the mast of the sail with a 6mm carbon tube.

regards

Hi thanks a lot!
Your print looks great
For the rudder pin I used M4x30 stainless steel bolt screwed to the rudder holder from bellow , I put a 6mm OD, 4mm ID stainless steel tube in the rudder for free movment.
For the keel I used a 400 grams lead fishing weight that I drilled in it to fix it with a M4 screw that goes to M4 nut that I put in the keel top.
I will post some pics when I get home.
Good luck.
