Re: Steve's FS18

Thanks Ken. Good to hear from you and thanks for the compliments! I jumped in here before heading in to work to get my mind on something else for a little while. Been working my butt off lately in response to COVID but I'm just blessed and thankful to be working right now and still have my health. I...

Re: Steve's FS18

Thanks OrangeQuest I didn't get the painting done Monday like I planned. I wanted to fair the transom where it isn't painted in the pic above and one spot on the bow. It's supposed to be nice this weekend. The plan was to not paint the transom spot yet but now I can get it all done at one time. We'l...

Re: Steve's FS18

Getting ready to put topside on this weekend. Here's a few pics of the process to get here. All faired up and ready to go. Only a few little spots to fill still.

Re: System Three Quik Fair over System Three Primer

I've faired small defects with QF after primer. I always lightly sand and clean the area first. Even if the instructions say it's not necessary to sand, I do it anyhow. Learned this approach from my friend CL. Same with painting, I always sand the primer before painting. I had some S3 paint fall of...

System Three Quik Fair over System Three Primer

I've primed the top of my boat and found a few small spots I'd like to fair a little more. Normally, I'd sand the primer prior to putting any fairing over it but was wondering if I can just add the System Three Quik Fair over the System Three Primer since we can spray topcoat over the system three p...

Re: Steve's FS18

Thanks Jeff and FallGuy! some more updates... This is in Compartment A. Power for the trolling motor, voltage meter, and the 12v plug with room for others in the future if needed. I added some non-skid in the epoxy when I put down the fiberglass thinking this will keep things from sliding around so ...
