Fixing minor structural problems on the "Snipe"

I had to make a repair to a part of the deck and centerboard case top on the Snipe (now Sigmund's boat). The problem area was the wings between the centerboard case and the hull.

Sigmund, the Captain:

Detail of the fix. UD carbon across the "wings" covered with a layer of hybrid, vacuum bagged. The peel ply still attached.

I also filled around the chain plates with HD bog:

And continued working on the leading edge

...and the keel shape

With one float now ready for external lamination.
