Felix's Canoe cleaning up stems and a Handy hint.

Hello Folks

This afternoon I spent a bit of time carefully chiselling away the white lead around the stem at one end of Felix's Canoe.

Before

After

With that done the stem was still in need of a bit of careful sanding.

Here is how to get to those hard to reach parts of the stem

The gap is too small for even my skinny fingers to hold sandpaper so I folded a small piece and gripped it between two thin pieces of wood like so.

Then worked it between the ribs like this

I had to change the paper quite often as such a small piece clogs quickly and I was also careful to make sure it was narrow enough so it wasn't cutting into the ribs. Cheers Alick
