Miscellaneous Gluing

Posted by Zachary Wiest in Epoxy, Spars

I just finished gluing a few miscellaneous parts for the Skerry.  For all gluing I used epoxy mixed with silica.  I glued the handle halves to the top of the daggerboard and the doublers to the rudder head cheeks.  I also glued the scarf joint in the yard.  The yard is the diagonal spar in sprit rig.  Because the wood is only available in about 8 foot lengths, I had to glue two pieces together.  It was difficult to get everything clamped up so that the sprit was nice and straight.
