I got a good long day of work in today. After finishing glassing the edge of the second hull first thing in the morning, I switched to getting the shear strake ready for installation. I routed in a drip groove on the underside using the jig I made. It worked like a charm. Instead of pushing the wood over the router I ran the jig with the router attached along the wood with the wood held in two braces. I sanded everything, layed out the screw holes drilled everything and dryfitted it. The next piece is to figure out how to finish up the ends. It'll be simple, no fancy carvings. ...but then again I might carve some kinf of figure into the ends. Tomorrow I'll try to get the ends done so I can make sure everything fits before I glue it all up and fillet the deck seam, then I'll be ready to glass the decks and cabin

Test piece with groove routed into it.
