Spent yesterday afternoon in the shop. Scraped and edgebanded FISH STIX rudder and centerboard. Began working on the gaffs for her and the tuck-ups. Used the spar gauge to mark the 45º chamfers on the two gaffs that Bill had tapered last week. Got one almost all the way planed. Want to make a few check gauges cut from scrap plywood so they don't get planed or sanded too small. 1 3/4", 1 5/8'', and 1 1/2" ought to do it for the gaffs.
Today, painted at the lab and my shop, gentle yellow, a nice color and name. Boss has been doing electrical for the last two days which makes her grumpy. Got to order the secret ingredient to complete URCHINs refit.
