Well once I got my USOM Keel and bulb installed it seems it is a bit warped, the bulb points at about 5 degrees to the centerline of the boat. I bought it used and believe it is balsa wrapped in a layer of carbon, what are my options for trying to straighten it? I have had it sitting in a jig which keeps the bulb at about 2-3 degrees in the opposite direction, and it works, but only for a limited time once out of the jig, after a day or two it goes back to it’s old ways.
Secondly, are there advantages to an above deck drum winch. I lost all my RC Boat files so my deck plans are again starting from scratch, my two options are realistic cabin top on a skiff deck (drum above deck in the cockpit), or a concave deck with the complete winch below deck. I am planning on using and S5801 and at this point placement of the winch will not upset the balance of the boat so I am free to mount it where ever. Thank you for your help.
