the skeg keel and the preparation of the the undersides

Aug - Sep 2008 : the repeat process of filling and endless sanding saw us through the rest of July and early most of August. We then added an oak skeg which, aft of the cb case, had to be laminated to achieve the required dimensions ie about from about 30mm at the cb case to 150mm deep at the transom. This was screwed (from the sole) and epoxied in with a significant strengthening epoxy fillet.

We epoxied the bottom board and the lower two strakes using 150g cloth as recommended by JW.
