False Keel

Laying out the False Keel. I noticed that there was a good amount of Warping in the wood, especially in the Stern section.

I applied Dap Weldwood Contact Cement to the joints using a Q-Tip. Then you wait 5-10 minutes.

I used Titebond Translucent Wood Glue to glue the support pieces on either side.

The False Keel has a warp to it on the Stern end but I’m not worried about it.
