Re: ROS vs 1/4 sheet sand
Posted by Nick on Oct 7, 2005
I built my wr18 with out the use of a ROS, i used a 12" plastic squeegee (12"x5") to apply all the epoxy. then used a 1/4 sheet finish sander to take out the few high spots i had and to blend the deck glass into the hull ( i used 150 and 220 norton paper).
After that i used a 12" wet sanding block(the kind used to take down orange peel on cars) and blocked the deck and hull with 320 then 600. Now i am varnishing it all(and sanding with 600 between coats).
If you take great care glassing the deck and pulling fill coats you can cut many hours from sanding.
