Cockpit sole, daggerboard trunk and rudder blade

Five hours of work today. We first cut to size the 3 sole stiffeners. Here's Cinzia sitting in the main hull and still smiling before being buried under the sole to check

Then, we glued the daggerboard trunk and the stiffeners to the low side of the sole, making epoxy fillets all around. This took quite a bit of measuring, checking, planing and the like.

We were so enthusiastic to work with epoxy that we decided to laminate the rudder blade (same thickness of the daggerboard)

Several clamps were used on the sole, so we had to use more sheetrock screws to squeeze everything together.The protruding part of the core layer will be cut flush when the resin sets.

Total work time to date: 294 hours
