Fairing and sanding.

Post by jacquesmm »

The experienced builder will reduce the need for fairing and sanding with clean fiberglass laminations and the use of plastic sheets or peel ply on the last layer. <BR>In a nutshell:<BR>- Reduce the need for sanding with a sheet of plastic or peel ply on the last fiberglass layer<BR>- Use a resin slurry to fill imperfections if any<BR>- Switch as soon as possible to a high build primer. Those thick paint primers sometimes named sanding primers are easy to sand.<BR><BR>Build a small boat first: it is easier to make mistakes and fair a canoe than a 22’ boat.<BR>
