I've been spending a lot of time sanding and I am really happy with how smooth the bottom and sides of the hull have turnout.
I rolled and tipped three coats of epoxy with graphite power additive. I really like the black too! I figured the color will give me a good indication of how smooth/straight the hull is and hide the pencil markings on the final layer of fairing compound. A majority of this epoxy will be sanded off at a later date when I final prep for primer and paint. Now it's time to layout deck hardware and fair the top surfaces. This should go faster than the time it took me to fair the bottom. I can hope!
