Re: Wooden rudder n dagger board

quickest way is this:

lay one or two strips of glass for protection...with epoxy, sand, smooth, more epoxy and a couple of coats of varnish

you said quick and thats quick...the layer of glass helps figh the scuffing rudders and daggerboards suffer and honestly for now you can even bypass the varnish coats uf you keep them covered

that or simply varnish..

the epoxy is great cause it resists scuffing can also bypass the glass if you want and go thickened epoxy, sand, more epoxy and so on

varnish is a slow process at least to do it well

fast curing epoxy will get you in the water andyou can deal with cosmetics later

microballoons are great for fairing...btw

Merit 25 sold...Islander 36 still afloat? who knows...Im still in Columbus, and back...I think...jajajaja!!!!
