- The plasteak stands a little proud. I might consider slicing off a quarter or half inch off the back.
- I placed it lower from the caprail than what is usually seen on other Westsail 42s, and my eye says it looks too low. But, the paint plan is to have a dark stripe of paint underneath the caprail, styled after the Pacific Seacraft Crealocks. That may balance out the distances. I wonder how I can simulate that dark stripe without actually painting anything permanent.
Anyway, no rush on this. I will keep this attached and see how it grows on me. More action here can wait till hull topside paint (not this year). I may attach a stainless rubstrake and see how it affects the look.
