MELONSEED 13'4" - Built by Etienne Muller 2020 - Designed by Selway Fisher

I thought a lot about the centreboard pin. I did not want to just bung a bolt with a couple of rubber washers through the whole shebang. If one squeezes too tight there is a risk of pinching the centreboard in the case, and if one does not tighten enough there might be leaks. This drawing illustrates what I finally decided on. The photos that follow show this drawing becoming reality. I took a bit of a departure on the CB case. It is more complicated than it really needs to be, but I wanted it to be on a par with the overall quality I was going for on the boat.
