Yep, I know/agree, that's what I meant by... "I think he would be better off using one of your designs (and methods)... regardless of the specific boat." It's really not my business what he tries to build... but, he asked my opinion... he's a buddy... and I want him available to help me sand my boat...

Re: Gelmagic questions

The SilverTip product for your fillets is EZ-Fillet. GelMagic is good stuff, just not intended for fillets.
