In preparation for the installation of the shear rail, I edge taped the deck and cabin to the hull. This took longer than expected. I still have one more hull to do in fact. First I sanded the deck (wood) and the hull (glass and fairing compound) then cleared all the sanding dust and did a wipe down with rubbing alcohol. As I wanted a clean consistent line, I taped the cloth in place just along its edge. I'm using 4" wide glass tape. As it was laying down over the curved edge very nicely without any modifications I began wetting it out starting from the blue tape edge and working towards the free edge with a 3" wide rubber squeegee and a 2" chip brush which I cut the bristles down to half lenght. This worked great. It was warm yesterday so I had to work with small batches of resin. In all it took a couple of hours to complete the one hull. My plan is to do the other one this morning.
