This morning we joined the centreboard together with the expanding epoxy foam. We poured in 1.8kg of expanding foam it looks like about 100g of foam has expelled out of our outlet hole in the mould. The below images are of the centreboard mould clamped together and also of a footstop mould made today.

The footstop will basically be a carbon fibre (clear finished) foot rest for the crew to use when getting out onto the trapeze. There will be one each side of the centreboard case approx 600mm long and positioned parallel to the centre line of the boat. The mould was made by folding 3mm sheet aluminium into the given shape.
