Skeg prep

Some prep work was the next task, before attachment of the skeg. After being glued together, the skeg has sat untouched. Before attachment, it needed to be sanded to remove drips of epoxy that has squeezed out from between the two layers, as well as evening up slight mismatches between the halves. Next, the edges were finished off with a router and roundover bit. A brief check showed that the mating surface contour fit the curve of the hull fairly closely. Tomorrow, woodscrews will be countersunk ahead of the final installation of the skeg. Total hours 64.25.
