Bo-Jest by Peter Tonkin

11 February 2008

Bo-Jest now completely sheeted with skeg attached. Skeg is seated with epoxy and an epoxy fillet glue line added. It was then fastened to the keel with 12mm hot gal dipped threaded rod.

A little fairing was needed to the bow section to smooth the sheet joins due to my lack of skill in cutting and shaping an exact fit (quite a learning experience). Number one son took one look and suggested I use fly screen cut to shape as a template over the first bow sheet to make the next sheet of 6mm fit and it worked a treat and saved lots of shaping work. Project is now ready to glass/epoxy.
