Failed attempt to trace keel assembly from plan
Robine tried to trace the keel outline onto the mahogany board from the plan using translucent paper. However, this was not accurate enough and the first attempt to cut a new keel from the tracing was unsuccessful, because new keel assmebly could not be made to fit the shape of the hull and the joints did not match accurately. This was probably due to stretch in the paper.
