Rudders on!

Starboard 1/2 of keel bulb set in place.

Had to take the fenders an wheel off to get the hoist close.

Yes the caution tape is for me. I bashed my head a couple of times before I put it on.

Setting the port bulb 1/2.

Used tie down straps to pull the 1/2's together.

If you know how these straps work, you'll notice that after racheting them tight, I could not release the strap. I had to cut it.

All bolted on to the strut.
