|I discovered bumps on port-side and starbord-side deck, about two meters aft from stem. In order to smooth them I doubled up the foredeck by 4 to 10 mm.|
This blog will take you along the different steps of building a 23 foot dropkeel sailboat. The DIDI 23 is one of the available designs for the amateur builder designed by Dudley Dix. The boat is built as a radius chine trailer sailer from plywood with bulb dropkeel.
I am 64, married, have two adult children and working as engineer for rf techniques at a physical research centre of the Helmholtz Association. I live close to the Elbe river in a suburb of Hamburg, Germany.

After the HIGH BUILD EPOXY FILLER has been sanded and washed, I applied the next layer. I decided for EPOXY HB COAT from Epifanes. On the uniformly gray surface now all the little bumps come to the fore. In particular, the Chines don't look very fine. I'll have to sand and fill them at least one more time.
