Daggerboard Slot and Paint Prep

Posted by Zachary Wiest in Epoxy, Preparation, Sanding, Tools, Woodworking

Today I flipped the boat over and cut the daggerboard slot with my router.  I did it freehand and was tough to get a straight line, but it turned out well.  The daggerboard goes through the hull, right in line with the centerline.  After I completed the cut, I rounded it over with the router.

Next I got out the sander and sanded the exterior hull in preparation for primer.  There was a lot of hand sanding too!  Luckily my girlfriend helped!  To finish off the day I sealed off the exposed wood in the daggerboard slot with some unthickened epoxy.
