Lamination 2

Got a lot more serious about laminating the leeboard today than the rudder pieces last night. I coated two of the boards with epoxy resin, let that sit for 20 minutes and then added some thickened epoxy in the middle and squeezed the boards together. I tacked them together with drywall screws and then clamped the edges. Should be a much superior bond than my weak glue attempt. I also only did two of the three pieces of plywood. After this one cures overnight I’ll add the 3rd piece of plywood to the other two.
