And the first time I use phenolic microspheres. I have to say that as finish they are great.

I would like to ask what size, length do you need to do these pieces?
Do you skeg for what? Do you recommend mounting?

Any time I see that Jacques designs a boat and makes the skeg optional I would put it on. It will help in tracking in various seas and in following seas also. It just makes the boat easier to handle. As you can see by the size it doesn't have to be large to make a lot of difference. I would go with one 3 meters, 9 ft long. You could go another meter longer if you wish, but don't go to long or you will affect other handling characteristics.

Nice, I would round over the pointed edge of the skegs as fiberglass will not adhere to that point.

Could also simply run tape up both sides and hope it sticks to the other side enough to hold it in place, then trim with a razor blade. Then again I don't think the razor sharp edges are necessary on those skegs.
