Hey folks,

Anyone else have problems with voids when glassing _inside_ parts of the boat?

I can get it to stick on the outside great, convex curves and gravity are a great help. But when I try it on the inside I have to sit there with a brush and keep tacking down the parts that stick up, very aggravating.

I know I could fix the problem by vacuum bagging it, but the trouble is the equipment costs as much as the boat!
