Re: Starting my Chrysler 22 Painting Project...Advice welcomed!

I don't see the long 2x4s you mentioned tying the stands together and that is the main concern I have with what you have. You really need to have an X support front to back. I'd really rather see it on the horizontal supports as well rather than just the osb supports but they look reasonably wide enough.

Anyway, best case for the keel is to sandblast it. There are portable guys that can do it relatively cheap. Something like por-15 or any good epoxy should keep the keel protected. The keel is not lead BTW but steel, so you could also try some of the rust converters as well. There are rust eliminators that work really well but you have to keep the metal saturated. The keel doesn't really look too bad but the absolute best is to drop it while you have the chance and do it right. Keel bolt probably could use looking at as well.

Re: Starting my Chrysler 22 Painting Project...Advice welcomed!

Today started off pretty rotten with it raining and our tarp springing a couple leaks, but we made a drip edge out of some tape on the upper portion of the hull so that if anything leaked down from the toe rail it would drop off the tape before running onto the bottom of the hull.

I used the Interlux water barrier...
INTERLUX InterProtect® 2000E Barrier Coat System at West Marine

I was assuming that I would be able to get two coats out of the gallon sized kit, and since it is a two part system, I needed to measure out the part one in half. The Part one is 3 quarts and Part two is 1 quart. 3 quarts = 96 Fl Oz and half of that is 48 Fl Oz so I used a 16 OZ Red Solo Cup and filled it up three times and scraped out as much as I could from the cup, then filled a second solo cup with Part two and mixed them together. Rolled on the first coat, messed around in the shop, and got some lunch, then rolled on the second coat. I painted a good 6" or so above the water line just to make sure the hull would be sealed nicely and I used up all of the gallon kit. I will need to buy a quart sized kit to finished where the boat stands are.

These pictures are right after I finished so you can still see some roller marks etc...

When I was at West Marine I looked at their roller cover chart and it said the only type of roller to use with the epoxy paint was the expensive foam rollers so i bought two of them. Well they did not hold up for even a single coat and started to break apart and leave foam chunks in the paint. Next time I go back there I am going to ask for my money back...
