    MIDWEST Boothbay Lobster

    Hey all-

    I am new to the thread and just recently purchashed a midwest boothbay Harbor lobsterman. I have been doings model baot builing off and on for quite some time now but figured I would see if anyone was familiar with this model..

    Ibegan dry fitting the keel and noticed that it shows the prop shaft lcated between two pieces of the keel...however is seems as if only one piece of the wood is beveled so that it will fit..the teo pieces will not come together flush..thus leaving the shaft visible...does anyone have any experience with this?

    thank you in advance

    jt,

    I'm not trying to be flippant but re-read the instruction manual. You'll find there are keel filler strips to center the stuffing box. Also, make sure you have everything turned the right way.
