Once the weather warms up in here in cleveland, I'm looking to get started on my boat tail. Your thread has a been a great inspiration for my design.

I'm going to be using a foam/fiberglass sandwich on a metal frame and I have a few questions.

What did you use as a filler to smooth the fiberglass? I read about an epoxy/glass sphere mix and was wondering exactly what that was?

Also, how much do you think a full sized boat tail would cost to do. including foam. fiberglass, body filler, primer, paint, etc.?
