FAIRING: To insure that the longitudinal lines are smooth, even, fair curves, stand back occasionally and sight along the area being faired. Dips and humps must be removed. If necessary another thin piece of wood can be glued into low spots and the area re-faired.
FAIRING: A short length of plywood is used to check the fairing in the forward portion of the boat. Considerable material may have to be removed along the stem to provide a solid landing for the bottom planking. Note that sheet planking will naturally bend to form a convex surface. NEXT
