Thanks for the support Jeff! You know I like posting here. The support from the forum is amazing! 8) :D 8)

Ok, I just finished the second fill of Quick Fair. I tried to only apply it to the low spots.

That's most likely all for today. Oldest daughter is meeting me for lunch then I have to help her get her submission ready for Teen Talent.
She entered photography and it has to be turned in tonight. It has to be printed and in a frame so we have to go get that done.

Looking good Eric. While fairing is a PITA what you get out of it is what you put in to it. The more the better. :D

Thank You too Tom. It is, just so much I can get done in a day. Hey on a Very positive note, After sanding all day yesterday I did not have any rotator cuff pain. Maybe the worst of that is behind me. :wink:

Good Morning Everyone.

I removed the dam at the transom corner. Here are the results.
I still have some fill to do but not much.

Image

Built a bit proud on transom side.

Image

After second pass of Quick Fair I'm still seeing tiny lows that wont fill well. I think if this is the worst I have I'll move forward to primer.

Image

I'm kinda excited to see what I'll have towards the bow! I think it's looking good. :)

Guess what I did today? Sanded the whole side again with 120 grit. I found I still needed to build the transom corner a bit more proud. Also more need at bow and I had a low spot and a tiny hole. I'm pretty sure after this fill this panel will be ready for primer. Hoping to move on.
Another 30 grams mixed and used as shown.

This is on kinda thick, tired of coming up lacking.

Small low I somehow missed.

Tiny hole I found.

After block sanding all week, I think when I finish fairing this boat I'll be able to rip pineapples and coconuts in half.
Pina Coladas all around!!!
