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

I managed to get the keel faired today.
We are having some pretty nice weather here when you consider it's December 24. It was 9C down at the boat.
I bought some G-Flex and some Pro-fil filler. Wasn't to sure how much filler to put in the brew but I did get it pretty stiff, kind of like thick icing. Although, given the temperature it did start to sag a bit before it kicked off. I managed to keep it under control but it will need some sanding and another application.
So far so good.

We have three rules;
No screaming.
No bleeding on the sails.
No slobbering on the charts.
