I finished fairing the port side of the main hull today.

This is the way it went:-
First I ran a random orbital sander with 120grit over it and that removed any marks left in the resin by creases in the vacuum film and tapered the taping along the gunwale. Then I covered the hull with beading (resin + Q cells). That took 2kg of resin. I sanded the beading off with a long board. That took a total of 5 hours. Beading was left in the hollows, maybe 500gms. The first pass of fairing compound took 1250gms of resin and the second around 350gms of resin. I followed this with a skim coat of "S Fair" as it is good at filling any pin holes. It is now ready for painting. I'll start on the stbd side tomorrow.

I know that the voices in my head aint real,
but they have some pretty good ideas.
There is no such thing as a quick fix and I've never had free lunch!
