1969 Chris Craft Roamer 46 Refit: Fairing the “Throne Room”

It’s hot. Too hot to even bother going to the boat this weekend. We’ll take our little Chris Craft Commander 42 out and go swimming instead, I think. But before the big heat wave came in, we got the fairing work done on the Roamer’s V-berth head (AKA the Throne Room).

Spendy stuff...but good!

This Interlux Interfill fairing compound is what they’re using over at Weaver Boatworks in the showers on their latest multi-million dollar sportfishermen, so my Boatamalan painter recommended using it on my boat. He said it sands better than the AlexSeal product we used on the aft stateroom head, and it’s intended for use in wet locations.

It took a few hours to trowel on the Interfill, then we came back to sand the next day.

For some reason, I only took the one picture of the sanded fairing compound. I’m blaming heat exhaustion.

That Dust Deputy vortex prefilter is awesome. It saves a lot of shop vac filter changes.
