Re-party poppers.
As suggested you could pack a little talcum powder or carbon black in with the wadding.
Talc would stain less than carbon, but cannonicus will start to smell like New Orelean's tarts hankerchief. :kiss:

Its been some time since I last posted but wanted to show some photos of Manhattan finally getting her bottom wet today in a shakedown cruise. Yes, that is a privy hanging off the stern. ;D

I need to add more ballast to bring her down to proper waterline & work out the devil that's in the drive servo that shutdown after less than 10 minutes of use.   

At the rate I'm building, I'll be lucky if Tennessee gets on the water by fall.
