Sailing 18ft Skiffs

Plans for getting the cherub back on the water have been delayed for a little while as I've picked up a ride on the "ILVE 18ft skiff team" for the 2016/17 season. 

Watch this space :)

Rudder Mould

Carving out new rudder moulds on my CNC router.  Section profile is NACA 64012, mould material is MDF, epoxy coated and re-machined.

Machining the foam core with western red cedar timber stringer.

Having a go at some female spreader arm moulds.

A spreader bracket mould.  This bracket will allow the spreader arms to be adjustable.
