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.
