Re: Classic 21 Express "Sweet Esmaralda"

Hi Daniel, Hey, another HMD19 build coming up 8). If you need any feedback or questions answered, by all means let me know. My build (page 6 in Builders - HMD19 Penny) has been a blast to build. She is now home on the trailer but I will likely get back on fitting her next year. Life took over (got m...

Re: FS18 on the double!

Hi Jacky Chan, From experience, any areas not faired and then rolled over with Kiwi Grip, the seams or overlaps on the glass will telegraph thru. It does not hide or cover any sins much at all. Even if it is a light fairing layer, that would be better than nothing at all and more so since you are us...

Great to see you back, Eric :D

Re: Classic 21 Express "Sweet Esmaralda"

Hi Daniel, I have used both birch ply and balsa at some point but that was a long time ago. Am unsure of cost difference now but birch ply is not cheap.
