Re: Spraying gelcoat

Doug, bljones, hello sailor: wow, great advice.

I was hoping that I could do small sections at a time but this does not seem viable. Thanks for averting that disaster :-)

I have some spare car body parts, thats a good call. I will be practicing on those. I'll start with a few preval sprayers and then move up to a proper gun (or two ...)

I'm also going to see what can be done about bringing back the original gel coat a la mainsail 's how-to. I that will work for the vast majority of the deck. If so it leaves just the cockpit to spray, a more manageable piece to bite off.
