filling in gaps and cracks?
Date: 6/9/1998, 1:28 am

Hi, this is my first time posting here. I've been working on a guillemot kayak and it is coming out beautifully for my first kayak. The only problem is that after stripping half of it I noticed many gaps and cracks in between the strips. I was thinking I would use some kind of wood filler to fill these up, because there are enough of them and the are significantly noticable. I was wondering what any of you might do in this type of situation, because I dont know if there is a wood filler that would work well with fiberglass and epoxy. Thanks for your help,
