Re: Starting my Chrysler 22 Painting Project...Advice welcomed!

Today started off pretty rotten with it raining and our tarp springing a couple leaks, but we made a drip edge out of some tape on the upper portion of the hull so that if anything leaked down from the toe rail it would drop off the tape before running onto the bottom of the hull.

I used the Interlux water barrier...
INTERLUX InterProtect® 2000E Barrier Coat System at West Marine

I was assuming that I would be able to get two coats out of the gallon sized kit, and since it is a two part system, I needed to measure out the part one in half. The Part one is 3 quarts and Part two is 1 quart. 3 quarts = 96 Fl Oz and half of that is 48 Fl Oz so I used a 16 OZ Red Solo Cup and filled it up three times and scraped out as much as I could from the cup, then filled a second solo cup with Part two and mixed them together. Rolled on the first coat, messed around in the shop, and got some lunch, then rolled on the second coat. I painted a good 6" or so above the water line just to make sure the hull would be sealed nicely and I used up all of the gallon kit. I will need to buy a quart sized kit to finished where the boat stands are.

These pictures are right after I finished so you can still see some roller marks etc...






When I was at West Marine I looked at their roller cover chart and it said the only type of roller to use with the epoxy paint was the expensive foam rollers so i bought two of them. Well they did not hold up for even a single coat and started to break apart and leave foam chunks in the paint. Next time I go back there I am going to ask for my money back...
