Man I forgot how much sanding was involved. I probably could have done more too!

So I'm making some Keel fins for this new eight foot fish Simmons and I'm trying to get the fins just right. I want to get a certain halo around the fans that you see often times on a wooden fin. Last night I put four layers of six ounce fiberglass cloth and it came out feeling really thin so tonight I doubled it to eight layers on the other side. I started working around 8:30 and its now 11:30. Now I know that the manufacturers that make these have ways of making them look great and I'm just a weekend warrior at this at best but it does take a lot of time to get it done remotely close to right.
