Re: Steve's Mayfly 14 Build
- The blades look fine to me as well. I think to fill voids Jim uses
Bondo? Or something like it.
The only other thing is you might consider test-running the leeboard a
few times before applying the final finish coating to make sure it
doesn't vibrate. Because if it does you can fair off the aft section a
bit more to cure that. And don't fair to a sharp edge. You want about
1/4" flat spot out at the back edge.

dont know if you want to go to the trouble but you could put a layer of
6 oz fg cloth/epoxy on the blades to seal the hard/soft wood and make
maintenance easier over time.
