I have succesfully completed the first few steps but now the bottom keel won't stay latched. the sides are staying latched and in place... what gives. I have followed the video instructions perfectly with no issues until now... what can I do?

Do you mean while you're assembling the boat?
You usually have to stand on the keel's horseshoe clamp while you get the crossframes in place. Otherwise it wants to pop back up.
