We picked it up today, apparently the owner forgot what year he bought it, because it's not an '86, it's an '89, one of the last 3 192's ever made, he bought it at the auction when O'day was liquidated for $4500 (minus sails) It's hull #488, any way to check how many were made, If I have the last one that would be sweet, but he said there were two more hulls not quite as complete as his.
Anyway, the boat is in decent shape, needs cleaning, polishing, and woodwork. But his sails are immaculate. I guess that's to be expected as he works in a sail shop. It has a barrier coat and worn ablative bottom paint over that, how should I paint it? Just recoat with fresh bottom paint? The barrier coat is good, but it has a rough texture, can I smooth that out or is that the way they are? My last boat was not coated or painted and was smooth as glass.
I'll have pics and a vid of the transfer from cradle to trailer when I get home tomorrow.
