FL14 RubRail

I am almost finished fairing the inside if my FL14 using QucikFair. I was planning on fairing the outside before installing the rub rail. Question; can the laminated rub rail be epoxied over top the QuickFair, or should I install the rub rail first?

Thanks in advance.

Now, regarding the math, I am a bit confused. Either I glassed too much on the inside, or it is not adding up to me. I glassed each seat f...

Double Tape on Chines FL14

Building the FL14. Thought I might be able to get through it without posting, but.. The lamination schedule calls for double tape on the outside chine for the FL14. Is this so? If so, I am 20+ feet short of tape. Don't think I'll make it with the e-resin either. Also on my second bag of wood flour. ...
