finally painted topsides

I hope the picture shows up, we have a stripe left to paint and a Cal-30 decal left to go -- finally. We took her out this weekend, got a bit chilly but nice oatmeal for breakfast and we did fine!

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

She looks great. Did you use a roller and brush or spray?

roller, brush and prayer

It actually turned out much better than we thought. We had a ton of cracks on the cockpit sole and some on the seats but filled them in with epoxy. The paint went on much nicer than expected and the finish was almost 'too' white if that makes sense.

She was light blue topsides and the deck prior so she'll be much cooler we think this coming summer. Fairwinds!
