Bits and pieces

A few different things got done today. The capping strip of the keel has been fitted and glued down. The rudder blade has been cleaned up and the ‘wing’ is attached. For the wing I used 4 SS screws and plenty of thick glue – and as angles go, this one is pretty right. Next I will glass the rudder blade just pass the line where the cheeks go, so I can sand and feather in the glass. Then I will attach the cheeks, which need to have the bottom edges chamfered beforehand (otherwise a router bit with a bottom bearing won’t work too well).  And … I prepared the bottom hull panels. The first one is glued and resting on the floor.
