Salt Bay Skiff – Centerboard Trunk

Late yesterday afternoon I mixed epoxy wood filler and filled all the bung plugs, gaps and seams. This morning I sanded them all smooth. I also started the build of the centerboard trunk and cut the hole in the bottom forward center of the hull where the trunk will be fit. The interior of the trunk has a layer of fiberglass 6oz cloth set in epoxy.
