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

The plate is cut from high density polyethylene from eBay, and the stainless steel threaded inserts and screws I found on eBay too. I filled the insert holes with thickened epoxy too. The white nylon rod shown here will be the axle. I found the black sleeves in my junk box. They are a perfect fit. My next job will be glassing the four sides of the CB case, then drilling the holes for the axle and the inserts, then making the centreboard, then gluing the case together. The polyethylene turned out to be easy enough to work with.
