Blushing through fairing compound?

Sat Aug 29, 2015 4:05 pm


FS14, getting wet soon.... NC16, plans in hand, I will build this summer. Classic 17 C17, plans in hand, 2019 build, if I can find the money. This is a beautiful designed boat.

I googled it,
viewtopic.php?t=60467

Not sure what you mean though.... The guy thought he had a problem, but was told he didn't, other than not to use vinegar to clean the boat, just your hands afterwords.

I did have some issues with blush using fast hardner in cool humid temperatures when fairing my canoe last summer, but it wiped away no problem with warm water and mild dish soap and a dishwashing sponge scotchbrite side. (not industrial scotchbrite)

Hi,

I got some places like this on my boat.

It was created by orbital sander at fast speed with dull sand disk burning epoxy.

Regards,

Carlos

Type in "Blushing through fairing compound?", in this forum's page search on the top of the page. It's the cleaning with water only..... I have been told to use so many different epoxy cleaning products....
