    That picture looks so familiar that I thought I was looking at my blog for a moment.

    I think this is the point where some builders use a “mist” of black spray paint and then when the hull is sanded with a straight board the paint comes off except in the low areas. You might want to give it a try.

    @OzzyC: So how well have you recovered from the fairing trauma – did that picture trigger any feelings of panic? ;-)

    @Steve: That’s a good thought Steve. It’s been in the back of mind – I always thought I’d give that trick a go once the low spots weren’t so easy to spot with the “naked eye”.

    I made some good progress on the X’s this weekend. Maybe I should pick up a can of spray paint this week…
