Fin Strake

Silly I know .. but I have been putting this little item off as the first bend I put in it looked more like a kink and so stopped as I didnt want a 5 sided curve !!

Completed this last night with the aid of some old pipe bending springs that I had from France .. very small bore .. so they were far less likely to cause a kink when trying to form a nice line from stringer to blend into the fin.

One end required cutting to allow it to seat either side of the stringer … the other end required opening out and flattening and then finally rounding … although this will be covered it will certainly still show through so pays to make it a good fit !
