Re: Topsides going from 'White' to flag blue

My boat looks great from 8 feet and yes if your the type of person that is going to obsess over every little pockmark you could find many faults with it

I did in fact go form white to desert tan

IMHO you will not be pleased with the durability of the brightsides

The prep is the same it needs to be wax free and then a coat of the right primer

If you thin it correctly and use the rollers like redtree or one of the other in the instructions

The roller is to get and even film of paint

The tipping is really to POP air bubbles and if you leave the paint alone it will do its thing and level out

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
