Thanks, Its a very rewarding project and I would love to do it for a living or even other boats if its just topside paint. The topsides are not easy to do but much simpler than doing a new deck job.

How did you prepare the surface. It looks like you have some kind of undercoating that you are painting over. Or did you just sand down the old finish completely. I"m interested in the prep you did before the actual application of the paint.

I started by cleaning the boat with a wax a grease remover the filling any low spots, or scratchs with west sytem filler. next sanded the entire hull with 220grit paper on a 5" random orbital. Next I cleaned agian and tacked the entire hull off, plus taping anything that needs to be covered. then primed the hull with awlgrip 545 primer. then sanded the primer with 320 grit then clean and tack before applying topside paint.

this is the short version it makes sound like this is a weekend project, when its really extensive and god knows how many hours. just take your time cause the prep is the most important thing.
