Re: LM18 lsrc Getting it done!

Rounded the sharp edges on top, not a lot, just a little and rounded the leading edge. Sanded hull/keel line, cleaned and put down a little neat epoxy. Mixed some wood flour and epoxy for glue, layed that down on keel line and placed skeg down. Covered skeg with some tape. Skeg ready for some sandin...

Re: LM18 - are you guys installing skegs???

I'm not looking for help! Just asking Him what he did. Think he is/was using a longer skeg then 8'. One foot from the transom with an 8' skeg does not go all the way up like he said in the post.

Re: LM18 lsrc Getting it done!

Not going to fair the bottom with fairing mix. Why put down something not as hard as HBN/epoxy mix. Since the bottom will be covered with HBN/epoxy mix, I'm going to put down the first coat as a leveling/fairing mix. This will fill in the low spots using a long level edge. Then add the next 3 layers...

Re: LM18 lsrc Getting it done!

Forgot the skeg! Some trimming and glue with some woven 10 oz 4" tape to cover it. It's not going anywhere.

Re: LM18 lsrc Getting it done!

The bow shape looks like a 12 meter Americas cup boat 8) That's OK with me! I've sailed on a few old 12 m girls, never race on one.... You are right, did not see that! I think I may have lost my Canvas Soul! Lionheart – K-18 (did not sail on her), but a good shot of the bow. 773a8331be9fda63952690c...

Re: LM18 lsrc Getting it done!

They are, never had problems with the little one. There are a few larger ones I will fix after my third cup of coffee!!
Using BBC's MarinEpoxy with slow hardener makes fixing little problems easy.
