Re: 28 Bertram Restoration Boat 2

If I go thru the glass while sanding I patch with a piece of light glass if it is on wood. On foam I put on some epoxy and move on if it it not in a high traffic critical area.

Re: 28 Bertram Restoration Boat 2

Spray fair is something I discovered on my last boat. It is a 2 part epoxy fairing compound that is thin enough to spray thru a 2.2 tip. It fills well and is easy to sand. I use it to get a smooth surface and fill small holes. once i sand it it is easy to see the low spots that need a more aggressiv...
