    I'm waiting for better temperature to start gluing things up. One thing Iwould like to ask, how much more grinding of the area yuou can see on prior pictures I need to do? I still don't see to much redish color and how important is that.

    relish color? I've never heard that before. Some MEKP is red some is clear. If you are talking about the glass hull, it appears to be good for glassing. Just needs to be clean and all gelcoat or paint removed. I can see glass fibers in the picture.

    LOL. Relish, radish or redish. I'm glad you think like that. I will post another picture of the area of my concern, maybe you will comment on that area.

    Yes the actual hull glass...pink, red, radish,relish don't really have a name for it ya see.
    I'd say your there too just don't want to glass to elcrapo leftover stuff.
    Wet out a spot and post a pic. Some guys don't care what they glass to if it looks smooth.
    If you have loose fibers they need to go.

    I think I have to give a little bit more grinding to these areas. What do you think? It looks worse on the picture, but better safe then sorry latter.

    if you are able to pull any fibers/glass off then yes more sanding. The problem being you are bonding to glass that is not necessarily secured to surface. JMHO.

    I have one like it. That one is for example. But they're a must have for grinding and sanding large areas and thickness.

    Full face dust mask/respirator is the way to go too. Keep it off your face/head. 3M models are the best I have seen. Makes all the difference in the world. You can really take your time rather than feeling rushed to keep the dust down.

    The only problem with full face mask is that you can't wear prescription glass under it. I have 3m half mask and motorcycle goggles. I just need to get a better no fog goggles.

    I have another question about wrapping stringers, I understand that when we are using plywood for the stringers we need to put small spacers under the stringers to prevent hard spots between hull and the stringers. On the top of it when wrapping with fiberglass we are adding thickness to the whole thing. What I am asking is, if my stringers have to be 9" high should I deduct spacers and the thickness of the layup.:(

    No boat or hull or mold is "square"/level. Take your parts into consideration and get to be as close to where you need to be.
    You can always sand down to level then finish with glass or PB. You can also add heights to level with scab wood. They call them cleats.
    They are applied to the sides of stringers and bulkheads.
