Stan asks: "Does anyone have any tips for improving the look of scarf joints...?"
You betcha, and it's easy, too. Just look at something else.
As a craftsman, your eye will naturally and almost irresistably be drawn to anything and everything you percieve as improvable. Nobody else will have this problem with your boat, only you. They'll be so busy admiring your incredible artisry that you'll have to point out every little flaw and blemish to the idiots.
There never was, nor ever will be, a perfectly built boat. Or if there is, you probably ought to shoot its builder. No jury in America will ever convict you, either.
