I enjoyed looking at your pictures. You are the first builder I know that has completed the latest composite keel. I would like to know if you had any problems getting all the needed amount of lead into the keel. As I remember, the steel shell I used for my keel weighed about 150 pounds. I only had to add another 400 pounds of lead but the shell was nearly full.

We recently sailed Just Right in the Florida 120 raid. The boat still draws lots of interest. We observed (as did others) that the VG20 points very high when compared with other boats. I think you will enjoy the sailing the boat.
