    Hi Neil,

    3M makes a fairing board and sand paper for it. You could make one yourself. They are 3 feet long flexible with a handle at each end and velcro on the bottom. Makes for a very smooth continuous surface.

    Hi Neil, I think you are doing a great job, I am working on the Tiki gone Tropo in Thailand. I fully appreciate the fairing of the hull is time consuming and laborious but you will get there with the longboard and devotion. When applying filler our guys use two stainless steel spatulas about 5-6" wide and they constantly apply with one and the excess is removed and they form a fillet on the "spare" spatula to apply on the next part of the hull. They also use this method for forming fillets, it is very effective and miserly in the use of filler, keep at it matey!
