Ok, it is winter, boat is put away and I know my blades need work. I am an avid club level racer and my blades do not measure into class rules The keel is too far forward (and too thin) and rudder is just too thin. Did I mention I do not have a big budget for this project? The rest of the boat is in great shape. I would be interested in hearing from the group their approach. 1) Would you spend the $$$ and have it done professionally 2) Try it yourself and at least make them minimum thickness 3) Leave them alone and enjoy the boat as is. My biggest concern is doing it myself and making them worse than they are now. How important is it to be PERFECTLY fair? I could probably get them close, but not perfect. I am looking forward to reading this discussion.
