Epoxy day

I cut the centerboard case packers to the correct shape. I also applied a layer of epoxy to the inside of the center case for cloth later on.

The Rudder case was sanded even on all sides and matching holes drilled for the pivot bolt. A layer of epoxy was then applied all over.
An additional layer of epoxy was applied to the rudder blade. I figure one more layer on the whole unit after a light sanding will do the trick.
I used the left over epoxy to give a coat the the centerboard around the lead slug.

Time: 2 hrs

  1. I like your blog and the rudder you have made turned out really nice,
    What type of wood did you used?
    did you fiberglass the rudder?
