Just roll&tip i have all the spray equipment BUT you really need a forced air respirator to work with the Awlgrip

Its a combo art/science project as small changes in temperature and humidity require tuning the mix to get a good result when working outdoors

I primed in the fall of 2010 and ran out of weather and had to wait till may of 2011 to get a window of weather with NO overnight dew which kills the gloss of the paint

I sprayed the 545 primer on my fully tented boat as it is fairly safe compared to the Awlgrip

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