Re: Fairing the Hull

As I've often written, the great thing about stitch-and-glue is that you don't have to build a mold. And the bad thing about stitch-and-glue is that there's no mold. Pieces of plywood that aren't much thicker than cardboard, joined in midair by stitches, sometimes come out fair and sometimes don't. That's true of every stitch and glue boat on the planet. Our instruction manuals outline strategies to deal with an unfair keel line in the event it happens. It doesn't, very often, but the tricks---including wedges and other tips---are there if it does.
