Foil shaping complete

The daggerboard is now also shaped, using the same method as for the rudder blade. They just need glassing and coating which will be done this week. As you can see from the pic, the foils have also been "breadboarded" with Tasmanian Oak. The edges are also stripped with thin slices of Tassie Oak, which is a very dense timber, so will provide protection from the inevitable knocks they are bound to receive. The screws have been removed and the holes plugged with Paulownia. You can see the stains in the Paulownia timber, but I'm not worried as they will be painted anyway
