here are the pics. of my rainbow 24 and ariel#74

Looking at the original color made me cringe at first. For some reason it is growing on me. I like the idea of keeping the gelcoat as the final finish. I did not like the durability of the paint i used on the hull. I will try painting the boot stripe orange and go for a paint scheme true to the era.

The bad news is that the boat needs a new core. It is good around the cockpit but I am going to do the whole thing since it seems kind of dumb to have different core material and different resin on the deck. wish me luck. I plan on cutting off the skin today.

Wow, you got two boats?

Why two, were the prices that good?

Smile getting the decks off is not as easy as i thought.

I cut the port side along the non skid. as soaking wet as the core is, I am still having a very hard time getting the outer skin to release. I think it has had git rot injected in a few places. I only had an hour to mess with it. we will see what happens tonite.
