Skegs & skids

With the last night of an available assistant, I was able to permanently install the skeg and skids. They were all unscrewed, and the area underneath them was scuff sanded. A batch of thickened peanut butter epoxy was mixed and applied to the mating surfaces of the skeg and skids. They were then returned to their positions and screws were driven back into place. A strap was tied to one side of the skeg to keep it plumb as the epoxy set. A large fillet was applied to the length of the skeg, and excess epoxy was wiped off the skids. Total hours 66.75.
