Re: Reinforcing keel on C

If you are using 6 oz. cloth there is no need to add tape. It will just add weight and when you feather it you will likely sand into the wood. If you are going with light cloth, for no good reason, the tape is easier to add after the cloth and then you would likely sand into the cloth when feathering the tape. Light cloth and tape would only save you a few pounds and is not worth the effort.

I do not sand the corners of the chines or the keel with the ROS only the flats of the panels. It is too easy to sand into the glass at the corners using power. The corners sand quickly by hand.
