I've come around to thinking that hand sanding is the best way to fair most of the time.
Now, I've discovered Dragon Skin.
The stuff I found in my "Sanding Stuff" box that must be 20 years old looks like this: http://www.riversports.com/product_detail/225.html. but the name must not be copyrighted bc there are several flavors available under different brands and most of them are not nearly as pricey as in the aforementioned link.
After clogging so many pieces of sand paper, this stuff is like magic....
Is there anything better? Brands? Holders?
