Re: Bottom Painting and color question
Once you go black, you never go back. I took the liberty of messing up your photo in "paint". This is how I made the decision to go from red to black on my first boat. An added bonus is that once you start to see red showing through, it's definitely time to repaint. You can also record where the red shows through first and put extra coats on those spots.
Thanks for all the effort on this Medsailor. However I am now thinking to go blue at least for this first effort. I plan to repaint topside in a year but will retain same color blue. Unfaded that blue will be several shades darker and I think a good match for blue bottom paint.
