Chines

When sharpening the chines with an epoxy fillet, how far forward is it necessary to go?

I found when I did it that there was a fairly natural spot where you end it as the chine turns into the crease maybe 10cm forward of 'directly below' the side stay. Anything beyond that won't be in the water if your boat is even moderately flat and hence there is not point in sharpening them.

By the way - I hope it was worth the effort when I did . Time consuming exercise !
