How to glass

This picture is of a piece of construction plywood made into the top piece of the centerboard trunk that also is a support for the mast of a dinghy.
It is for my rainbow dinghy if you remember my prior post.

I have some fiberglass cloth and some epoxy so I figure I might as well cover it.
Covering a flat surface with cloth is easy enough.

This piece has so many corners and curves, any tips on how to cover it smoothly to cut down on the sanding.

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
