Re: 2019 Southeastern Boat Builders Meet

Yeah it might be a wet Builder's Meet. Jeff and I have been watching Invest 95-L. Looks like we will get some rain from this one. Maybe we will get lucky and it will turn to the south a bit.

Re: FS14_LS

@Reid, Do you think 1/2 gallon is enough topcoat to do 3 layers? Im thinking a gallon of primer because i will most likely need extra for seeing the initial imperfections on the fairing material. Let me know if im on the right track. A gallon of the primer sounds good. The topcoat paints vary a lit...
