I've been fairing and sanding.. I failed on smoothing FG very well originally, so extra fairing material has been ordered. Certainly recommend using plastic sheeting (I did not).
Anyhow, I'm planning to finish fairing bottom and sides, and then add spray rails, but now I'm thinking Reverse (flat) chines like SideSlippa on his OB17 - his pics best seen in another post (and endorsed by Jacques as a good method): https://forums.bateau2.com/viewtopic.ph ... ne#p247041
I think they'd look great, well contained in hull design, and probably just as easy as adding spray rail. I'm thinking about 5/8" to 3/4" height extending up from the side, and about 2 to 2 1/2" wide at stern, and begin tapering, at about 4'-5' from bow, down to nothing at bow or at a foot or so before bow.
**My concerns (I hope * Jacques (jacquesmm)* will hit me with an opinion on all this):
1. Is this an ok thing to do on FS14, instead of spray rails, regarding performance, and spray knock down?
2. If I proceed, should I use epoxy thickened with what? Micro-balloons, Silica, West product? -- using gelmagic is a simpler possibility, but seems expensive and unnecessary use of it?
3. How much will I need extra resin, etc. - I'm thinking extra gallon and half of epoxy, but how much of the filler?
