I'm getting close to finishing the fairing of the outside of the main hull.
I'm really happy with the way it is turning out and the amount of resin I have used.
I just need to longboard the stbd side lower section to the keel and do the skim coats of filler.

One of the things about fairing that does annoy me is the cleaning out of containers to mix up the fairing compound.
Ice cream containers are good to use, but we don't eat enough ice cream to have an endless supply.
To avoid having to clean one out for every fairing session I have been putting the one I just used in a plastic bag and into the freezer at the end of the session.
The cold temp stops the residue in the container from curing.
So when I need it I just take it out and mix another batch. By the time the batch is mixed the old residue has warmed up enough to be workable and goes on with the new mix.
Some people also do this when they mix too much resin and don't want to throw the excess away. The only catch is that you can't leave it too long before it goes into the freezer.

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!
