Once I was satisfied with the shape, I marked out the cutout for the lead insert. I applied a first coat of epoxy on one side. Once the epoxy sets, I'll turn it over and coat the other side.This will soak in and allow for good adhesion of the fiberglass cloth/epoxy later on.I'm pleased with the results of the boards shape. The maple is hard and heavy and once covered in epoxy really looked nice. Too bad it will get several layers of fiberglass cloth and paint once complete. The pivot hole will be drilled when the centerboard case is ready. The notch where the lifting lug is attached is yet to be cut as well.
