Skeg is Installed

Yesterday I was able to make use of my broken piece of Mahogany used for the Chine. It happened to be just the right length so all I had to do was tapper it from 2" aft to 1" forward, round the corners and install. I used epoxy thickened with milled fiberglass and 2" brass silicon screws to secure it in place. I taped the area around the skeg before a coat of epoxy. This made the cleanup very easy. All I have to do now is fill the screw holes and let all the epoxy cure for a week and then the painting begins. ( I will only be painting the bottom of the boat, the sides will remain with the wood look )
