I'm sure this has been discussed before, so I tried searching many different ways and could not find what I was looking for. It would be great if postings were cataloged by key word ex. boat, subject matter etc.
Okay on to my question, on my SW17 I used wood flour for fillets and straight epoxy for end pours On my next build I want to try saving some weight. Would I save that much weight using micro balloons for each? How do they look for fillets? clear? I know I used to much epoxy making my bulk heads smooth, can I get away with just one coat and leave a rough finish? In fact the underside of my deck is smooth to, With out going too extreme how much can I save on a 45 lb. boat? 1,2,5 lbs.? Any tips would be appreciated.
