I'm building a Chesapeake 17 and have reached the "filleting" stage. Problem is, I've read the manual several times, studied the illustrations (all of which are great, by the way!) and I'm still little confused about filleting and taping the seams.
My first question is: Does the fillet go all the way from the keel to the top of the side panels? As that's a really acute angle in there, it's obvious that the my 1" radius fillet tool is not going to fit. So, if the entire seam does get a fillet, my next question is: How? Do I use a smaller fillet tool or simply my gloved finger? Don't have a problem with it either way but do need some advice as to how to proceed.
Lastly, along those same lines: Does that seam (up inside the side panels) get an application of fiberglass tape or will the end pours take care of that?
Needless to say, any and all advice will be most welcome!
