Daggerboard Case continued

Now the cheek block has been trial fitted to the case, the sides can be joined. The insides has been coated with several layers of antifouling, as this area will be inaccessable once it is joined together.

Glueing together.

More layers of glass are then added along the hardwood sides.

Despite the core of the side panels being made from end grain balsa, this is now a large and pretty heavy piece. I can just about move it around single handed, but I doubt I could lift it.!

Case is now ready to be fitted in the hull at a later date. It will be trimed off at an angle either end to match the hull.
