If I go thru the glass while sanding I patch with a piece of light glass if it is on wood. On foam I put on some epoxy and move on if it it not in a high traffic critical area. If so I patch with a piece of light glass,

I actually brushed this on. I have tried rolling but found brushing works better as you can work it into the small holes better. I don’t know how thick it is . I put it on heavy as most of it will be sanded off anyway. This is just a filler for small irregularities and to identify where additional fairing will be required. I use it because it is so easy to sand and thin enough to fill small holes.

from the pictures it looks like you rolled it on........................
Thanks for asking; I assumed you HAD to spray it!

Well after a long hiatus I am back at it. Need to get this one finished so I can start my next one. Spent the last last 2 day spraying high build primer. Put a total of 8 mixed gallons on it. The first day I used my conventional stuff. Decided I need to step up my game and brought out the big guns. Now for the sanding. Image

How do those in sole hatches seal?

The boat looks great.

I am asking because I came up with a way I think will work, but am guessing you know. My seals are on the gutter landing up high, but count on some compression.

Awlgrip HB? Or is that sprayfair 328?
