infusing a portion of a centerboard case

Sometimes it's a toss up as to when to use the resin infusion process. In some cases, a controlled infusion of resin can be a good way to insure a strong part.

One nice thing about the infusion process is that, if done properly, it can be a neat and clean operation.
