Re: Puzzle cut panel length

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...

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.
