Re: Beach Cats in Rehab!

Looking good Mellow Yellow.

Thinking about the use of Gel Coat. My bilge looks as if someone took gel coat and painted it sometime in the far past. Now the coating is all pulling away and chipping. No real problem as I just took a shop vac and chipped all the lose and vaced it out. But I have concerns with using gel coat and getting good adhesion. The stuff in my bilge was white, very hard (like gel coat) and up to 1/8" thick. Maybe it was put on too thick as others had mentioned that could be a problem.

In any case did some deck glass work last week and wanted to get the job done, so I used Easy poxy (similar to Brightside). Painting was easy and job looks great. If it scratches, no big deal, I can sand and paint the deck in a couple days.
