'Go Faster' Bits are In


First mentioned back in this post, weather provided the opportunity to glue the shims in to take up the gap between the rudder and skeg (about 1.5 inches). The shims were machined from Coosa, coated with epoxy and attached to the skeg with thickened epoxy. Final shaping fairing will be done during bottom preparation for paint. I expect to gain a full knot from this modification!! (lol, well, who knows. every bit counts)
