Re: Fairing Compounds, what do "you" use?

I found I couldn't add enough balloons to stop it slumping. I finally resorted to adding some cabosil just to stiffen it.

I admit to some initial concerns about the talc underwater but the old boatyard owner who told me about it had a lifetime of building & working on boats so I tried it.

Never had a problem.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
