The forum upgrade is complete. It was very uneventful. Please post issues in this thread.

Due to a high level of "bad actor" traffic on the community site Jaysen is implementing a forced verification to confirm that you are a human. This is a PITA and he hates it too. The 3.2 seconds it takes for the one time you have to do it every couple hours is much preferable to the hours we are losing to morons clogging the CPU on the servers. Jaysen is still looking to solve this a bit less intrusively and without cost to BBC. Hopefully the magic solution will appear out of thin air soon. Jaysen is already annoyed.

Fairing and sanding.

Post by jacquesmm »

The experienced builder will reduce the need for fairing and sanding with clean fiberglass laminations and the use of plastic sheets or peel ply on the last layer. <BR>In a nutshell:<BR>- Reduce the need for sanding with a sheet of plastic or peel ply on the last fiberglass layer<BR>- Use a resin slurry to fill imperfections if any<BR>- Switch as soon as possible to a high build primer. Those thick paint primers sometimes named sanding primers are easy to sand.<BR><BR>Build a small boat first: it is easier to make mistakes and fair a canoe than a 22’ boat.<BR>
