More steaming today, the chines and inner gunwhales. Really looking like a boat now
Made a start on a core for the centreboard. I figured if I did this now, I can spend time shaping whilst waiting for glue to try between jobs on the hull. I began by building a strong flat building board (above) to ensure the cedar strips were glued flat, and to support the foil whilst shaping.
I've used 24x50mm WRCedar strips swapped end for end from the machined strip, glued up with a microfibre/balloon mix and clamped up with wedges.
It's gone really cold tonight and the last bit of glueing stil hasn't hardened after 48 hrs so I've brought the foil into the house to cure (shhh !).
I plan on following the c/board design guide by Trent Cornwall (link on the Farr site) and will use a NACA 0009 or 0010 aerofoil, an elliptical leading and straight trailing edge
