Re: Small bulge between s

best to post that picture...
if you are painting your hull you can be rather agressive in dealing with this sort of discrepancy...if you are going for a clear finish, you are a bit more limited or it takes a lot more finesse to fix a problem like that at this stage.
fwiw, as the builder, you are proably much more aware of minor idiosyncracies than anybody else who would be taking a look at your boat. You probably don't "need" to fix it from a structural or boat handling persspective. it takes quite a bulge in the context of a 16 foot kayak to impact its structure or paddling characteristics.
so lets see the picture...its probably not that bad.
