Scratches & Rudder

Posted by Tim Clark on Mar 20, 2008

Two Questions:

1. When the weather gets warmer I will be refinishing the bottom to address several deep scratches I caused last summer (low water paddlng!). Obviously sanding, epoxy for filling scratches, more epoxy and finlly varnishing will be involved.

When sanding, How do I know I am sanding through varnish and not too far into the epoxy?

2. Last year I installed a rudder (K1) but inexplicably did not install a retaining screw to keep everyting inplace in case of a capsize. In order to correct this ovesight what screw and/or washer combination should I use?

Thank you, in advance, for your wisdom (as always).
