1st side of 6oz on the console and second pass of fairing on the top side. Fairing is just durn near there. Used Quick Fair for my first time. Pretty easy compared to wood flour fairing material. Works really well on the vertical bulkheads fore and aft. I should be painting this week or latest next week. Started on fitting out the trailer and need to schedule with TPWD to get licensed

Can't wait to see the paint.

I hope you were fairing with BBC blended filler prior to the Quik Fair. Using wood floor would have been a bear. Quik Fair is a little pricey but it sure goes on smooth. I’m right behind you. Looking good.

Console looks good. Looks like you extended it like you talked about when I was there. It's just an amazing amount of progress made since then, dunno how you do it!

So I’ve got one more sanding followed by one pass with fairing followed by one more sanding. Then there will be a camellion (sp) event. This fairing thing is not the fox hole I’m going to die in. Quick Fair is the neatest thing since Viagra!,

Non- Prescription! Still pricey but bang for the buck? Don’t know?

By decree of the harbor master and fleet commander the fairing of this hull is complete! Got a couple days of obligations and will get on with the painting.

I will always find the bucks for Quick Fair. No contest to anything else I've tried.

Got next dry spell of weather starting Friday. Sanded and ready to paint. Have half gallon of system 3 yacht primer. From my original stocking purchase from BBC. I have gallon of System 3 WR LPU. Several recommended EMC. Is it worth sacrificing what I have and getting EMC? Thanks. I really am anxious to get this thing finished and then have fantasies about a positive checking account balance. I realize boat ownership and bank account balances are inversely proportional
