Re: Topsides going from 'White' to flag blue

I did wide cove and boot striping on my boat last year with two coats of primer and three coat of black Brightsides. It came out okay, but I later realized my technique was lacking. Now that I have a better understanding of the method, I just finished all the removable parts of the boat in advance of painting the decks and cockpit. All of these pieces, done in my basement, came out fantastic. Carefully prepped and carefully executed roll and tip can come out great. Now, a full hull in a dark colour? A little harder but following correct procedures should come out great.

As we've all heard before, the secret to any paint job is the prep.
