with 24.5 chord thickness i made the 3 point stress test on the keel after the final layup.
With 75 kilos in the midlle of the keel it deflected 3mm.
weight is 2.2 kilos at 24.5mm x 142mm x 870mm
i think is stiff as necesary.
what do you guys think?
ill start on a new keel with a thinner chord (16mm) and longer mast (920mm).
the idea is to make upper half in 24mm ans the lower half that goes inthe wáter tapered down to 16mm.
that way ill get both stiff and thinner and faster keel.
