Rudder mould preparations

Silas and wife visited today and he brought the rudder moulds!  They really looked great.  The foam has still to be milled, but in the mean time I will prepare the MDF for repeated use. Torkil will modify his Corsair 24 with an F-22 high aspect ratio daggerboard rudder as well, and we plan on making a spare to avoid loosing a season should any one of us be unlucky.
Two coats today, I let the first get tacky before I applied a second one.  The "wood" tends to rise a bit when wet, so I'll sand down and apply a third and perhaps fourth coat when properly cured. Then comes waxing time.
