Hookup

I leveled everything up on two planks and blocked up the ama to the right height.  The forward kiato is connected to the ama with four struts so I drilled holes through the skin and deep into the foam until I hit the center web.  I poured epoxy thickened with microspheres into the holes and inserted the 1-1/4" dowels.  The aft kiato only has a single vertical strut installed in the same way.  The pitch trim of the ama can be adjusted by moving the lashing point on the aft strut.
