Lol on the french butter dish... ironically, this is a question I asked SpaceX once before... how water-tight are prints? How many shell layers are needed to ensure water tightness?

It seems I would have two issues with water tightness; when the head moves from drawing the perimeter to the interior on my first layer (and others), it sometimes takes a second to start extruding, leaving a line of plastic that's too thin to mate with its neighbors. Secondly, skeinforge doesn't
always completely fill a layer; sometimes when I print there are gaps slightly less than the print width in the first layer diagonals, and it never gets filled...
