2017.02.15 - Varnish and Skeg

The first task of the say was another coat of varnish on the pieces currently being varnished. I'd do more but there's not enough room in the container to place the work. Just one coat takes between 45 and 60 minutes to carry out. The template for the skeg was also created and three pieces of marine plywood cut and epoxied.


This is the template for the skeg.


The laminates for the skeg being epoxied together,


And the area where the skeg will be mounted is cleaned up.

he skeg could not be completed today as by the evening the epoxy had not cured enough to allow the piece to be worked.
