I have built the gaff for my T30. Looking at the almost finished spar I am asking myself if I should give it some taper towards the end. The gaff is a 5x7cm spar laminated from two 2.5x7cm pieces of fir. I have just rounded the edges but not taken off much wood. I take it it is not mend to be fully rounded.
There is nothing in the plans about rounding or tapering but it could save some weight aloft.
What would be the right thing to do?
