I've got about 90% of my Ches 16 stitched together right now(ran out of copper wire two feet from the stern), and am trying to decide how to proceed with fillets once I finish the stitching tomorrow. I've read that some people tab the hull and then remove all the stitches before filetting. This technique appeals to me, but I'm a little unsure as to how to go about doing it. What type of mix to do you use: wood flour, cell-o-fill, etc? How often do you apply tabs to the seams (between every stitch, every other?)? Are there any downsides to this method?
Any advice/info would be great!
