Finally finished laminating the keel. Ended up using E glass alternating between 12 ounce biaxial and 10 ounce unidirectional fabrics. for a total of 11 layers. Did a simple hand layup using a brush, squeeges, and a laminate roller. It's a nice thick layer of fiberglass. From what I can tell, it's just over an 1/8 inch thick. Which should be just about right. It also seems quite smooth and true to the foil shape. I'm sure I'll still have to do some fairing, but hopefully not too much.
