Sanded the fairing guide strips then applied the first layer of thickened glue/fillet epoxy. Then I moved up and finished the sanding and fairing around the starboard windscreen. Then I layers a strip of 450gsm glass tape on the roof. I had some left over epoxy resin so I barrier coated the filler with it and it looked great then I cut out the Port portholes and the windlass in the bowsprit then an access hatch that will house the anchor snub rope and windlass remote.

Are the fairing strips removed after they show a smooth curve to follow? Sorry if i'm dense I just don't understand how they are being used. I understand the use to create a smooth line just not you did.

The fairing strips are 6mm plywood strips that I cut 20mm wide and 600mm long and wrapped them in cellophane tape. I applied thickened epoxy to one side of it then screwed it through the centre into the hull just until the plywood touched the high spot of the strip planking underneath. This ensured an even curvature. Once dried I unscrewed the plywood strip and what was left was the thickened epoxy in a curved shape filling in low spots. I did that every 200-300mm. Today I gave them a light sand and applied thickened epoxy In between those curved thickened strips and used them as guides for my trowel to ensure the curve was even across the area.

Hope that makes sense?

Indeed it does. Makes perfect sense and a clever way to achieve the guide surface.


Thanks
