Re: Aussie Belle

I'm glad you are not too worse for the wear, and that everyone else came out ok. I hope you are able to put this behind you and enjoy that beautiful boat with the people you love.

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

Re: Fisherman

I would recommend using a lower grit (60) to knock down the majority of the filler, and then use a hard backed sanding block or long board to do the final leveling.
