This thread is for those projects that are not quite perfect but good enough to keep use sailing and not stuck in an endless persuit of perfect.
To start top side and deck paint.
Do you want a finish quality that looks good with nose pressed to hull, or from the adjacent slip, across the fairway or a passing glance 100ft from the fuel dock.
The boat still floats which ever finish you select.
I generaly do a clean, light sand and west marine polyurethane top coat in the spring if my finish looks tired, but otherwise I would rather be sailing.
