Re: What color paint hides imperfections best?

I am surprised no one has suggested heavy use.

Re: Narfi's FS17 - Build Thread

Looks fine. I did what you did, painted just high enough. I think it was 1/2" over the Chine. Have fun, don't fall overboard... My current plan is to paint down to the corner, but I left myself the option of masking a 3/4" strip as well, so I will see what is easiest to make look good when the time...

Re: Narfi's FS17 - Build Thread

4th coat on. Its finished. 20180510_090632.jpg Results..... I am ok with it. Yes it could have been better but not without an emense amount of hours put into it. I think for the bottom this compromise on aesthetics is acceptable. I wont be rolling anything up where people can see and I will fair bet...

Re: Narfi's FS17 - Build Thread

Narfi, you guys have a great cruise!!! Jeff Thanks! Expecting some fun and sun. Got the third coat rolled on, it's good enough but I have enough graphite still so I will do a fourth. The three coats used most of 2 bags of graphite. I bought 3, used less than 1/2 on the canoe, so after this 4th coat...

Re: FS17 Restart

How far off the ground should the legs of the jig go. Just approximate trying to keep it at a comfortable working height? I'm not sure for the low sheer, but my legs were too short the first try for my standard sheer, the bow point goes lower than you expect. If the low sheer uses a bow mould, you ...

Re: Narfi's FS17 - Build Thread

Shifted graphite a few times? Went home for a long lunch and applied 2nd coat after about 60 seconds worth of sanding the biggest lumps. Paid close attention this time and it is definitely foam chunks. Happy to report though, I don't care. They are small enough and where no one will see and best of...
