FF construction

The full foil can be cut and compressed or expanded to create foils of different sizes.

In the picture below we see three sizes 270mm, 210mm and 160mm chord lengths. 

The rear section which was cut off can be used to improve the glue joint by enlarging the surface area to be glued.

In this sequence of images a standard 25mm section is expanded to 30mm wide by using a 1" ball bearing and pushed through with a 1" Diameter Alumunium bar.

The resulting section is a 30mm thick section identical to a Laser Pico  Centreboard.

The sequence below suggests a method of creating a mitered right angle joint using a barrel nut or cross dowel.
