I recently posted photos of my core repairs
in another thread, and have a question regarding the next phase of the project
. Other core repairs
I have done have been on larger flat areas - cabin
top for example. The current project
involves the side decks (approximately 18 feet of repair area on each side), and they are glassed and ready for fairing. Previously I have used a sail batten to spread the fairing material but the side decks are narrow in the front, wide in the middle and very narrow at the cockpit
. I would prefer to work as lengthy an area as possible at a time, but I am thinking it will be difficult to drag a batten smoothly for a long stretch because of the changing width. Is there anyone who has done this that could offer some suggestions I may not have thought of?
