Crafting the Pocket for the Teflon Glide Block

Into the forward bottom edge of the keel foil slot a Teflon glide block has to be fitted.

I machined the required pocked by using a BOSCH oscillating multi-tool

To cover the pocket surface with glass fabric I used a wood block as mould. The mould block is wrapped with plastic-foil in order to be removed after the epoxi has set.
In a last step all is faired and covered with a epoxy-copper mixture
