Keel Laying Ceremony is Part of the Celebration of a New Boat

Keel laying Ceremony is part of the Frame Up day.
The keel laying ceremony is a cherished ritual and on Frame Up day everyone who came by had a chance to sign the keel. The signatures and messages included hopes for the boat and a chance to remember those who are no longer with us. The keel laying ceremony has evolved over time but everyone loves a chance to connect to the vessel - especially the kids who say it best. "Just don't sink."

The keel signing ceremony is great!
