In Response To: Re: Strip: Gaps inside hull ()

Whatever filler I use, I find that it needs to be fairly 'thin' to penetrate small cracks and defects. The wood will absorb epoxy or water and dry out the filler as you apply it.

Durhams works well quite thin, filling small gaps pressed in with a putty knife and scraping off excess.

I've never had problems with it popping out.

It's designed as a wood filler and works.
