Next step is to glass the top of the mounting plate and then get the mast attached. With this step done -surf!!! I'm not sure where the swell came from but it was over head and a blast!!!! I got more than a few really great waves and got to pull some fast large arc sweeping turns and speed runs along long walls - so much fun! If I had known there was swell, I would have brought the Greedy Beaver - but the TJ Everyday wasn't overpowered so it's all good.
