Still plugging away on the build. Now as winter sets in and its too cold to glue in the boatshed, I'm working on portable projects in my heated shop. Daggerboards now have their trailing edges glassed on - still needing fairing. Still need to glass other edges, fair it all, and install the hardware.

Also decided to cut a step into the transoms for low dock boarding. The tiller head had been hitting a bit too so cut that area into a step as well to help with clearance. More work than maybe it was worth, but now just fairing it all in and some more roving inside.

About done with daggerboards for now. Still need to finish sand and maybe patch a couple little pinholes/depressions.. finish off trailing edge by giving it maybe a 60 degree angle, and paint. But since paint is a ways off, I'm going to keep the interest level up by beginning work on the new rudders. The daggerboards were a lot of sanding-patching-sanding, etc. All by hand, pretty much. Ready to let that rest.

Boat is in an unheated area and it has been in sub-zero F. temps lately, so picking projects I can do in my heated shop. Lots - rudders will take awhile. Right now it is up in the low 20's F., but windy and maybe got some snow coming. Still too cold to get much done in there.. could do more sanding/finishing of some rough woodwork after the rudder project.

Started the rudders. First is to make sections (like bulkheads) that will help determine shape of rudders and add strength. I bandsawed out 3mm plywood foil sections, then glued on 6# density foam. Tomorrow I may add the biaxial fiberglass to both sides. I also vacuum bagged up some foam to use as infill between the sections. That is some Klegecell 5# density foam I had on hand.
