    I am not particularly drawn to double enders. However, the Typhoon is an exception! As you said She is so sleek and beautiful that it is hard to take your eyes off her๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

    Thats a tough one Dave
    You could use double sided tape. I used that with limited success on my Typhoon, as some fittings are very small.
    On other boats I have drilled the fitting for a small pin and drilled a corresponding hole in the model. Then used a little CA to glue it to the model.
    Not much help I'm afraid.

    Just a Thought, Dave.
    Over a period of time epoxy does blush/deteriorate when exposed to sunlight.
    You might want to consider the finish coat that contains an ultraviolet filter.

    Hi Dave,
    I used the Dumas Stain.
    I would be leery of an oil-based stain as it might affect the adherence of the epoxy.

    Hi Dave,
    She looks Great.
    I did not use cloth above the water line on my Typhoon.
    I did not think it was necessary.
    I just used Epoxy Resin.
    I did epoxy the inside of the hull.
    Although my Typhoon has never seen the water other than to check the water line.
    But use your best judgment.
