Caledonia yawl project: rudder tip and centreboard coating

This evening I was able to escape to the boat shed for a couple hours. If only I could manage on a couple hours less sleep a night I would make quick progress.

I added the last bit of Kevlar to the rudder tip

 

rudder tip gets covered with an additional layer of kevlar
 
I then started coating the centreboard with a layer of I in-thickened epoxy to seal the surface before I lay the unidirectional carbon fibre. The cedar is quite dry and sucks up most of the epoxy I painted on.

 

the wood grain really looks beautiful. (the lighter patch is where i had already coated a few weeks ago)
 
I also started to set things up to laminate the knees needed at stations 2 and 4.

the knees are a much tighter bend than the apron or stem
