Glued on the gunwale sections, one at a time. Drying time slowed things down a bit.
Glued on the rudder guide and some extra basswood strips to give it a more secure support. Added a basswood strip to the stem post to reduce the gap between it and the rudder. Also painted the underside of the transom area.
Water tested the rudder to see how well the copper tape would stick. Not good. Reapplied copper tape along the spine with some Super Glue and tested again. Held much better.
