Nice job...particularly like the two stripe lower. You must really be good with the masking tape to hold that same distance all around the hull to the stern in those two lowers!

Nice job all around! Pulling the masking tape to reveal results like that can totally make your day!!

Did you use a laser to lay out the stripes?

Thanks everyone, yeah its all in the prepwork. We just did it by eye and with a ruler, I did the masking while my wife and parents stood back and told me good or bad. This had to be done that way for the back since the 4" stripe flared out to little over 9" on the stern. The breaks in the top line at the stern is where we are putting a Columbia Name Logo, and fwd of the stripe will be the MC numbers. Next will be painting the decks.

Nice job, congratulations!!

For the stripes here we don't paint anymore, we use Vynil Plastic film that comes in al colours and is particularly good wnen painting the bottom, because its already masked and after we remove it a put a nwe stripe. I change my stripe colours once a year!!
We use water and soap to put them on.

For my boat, the vynil sripes cost around 150 Euros.

Don't know if I would have had it painted next to the Bush 04 poster.

Wow! Looks great! Have you thought about creating a blog on Sailnet to document the entire process? I know I would be interested and I bet, based on recent threads, the entire group would as well.

I guess I did not know that was a feature. Yeah I get alot of comments about the Bush poster but I can't complain to much the barn rent is free, and its heated and has every tool anyone could ever want in it. I guess one good thing about the poster is its great for showing the gloss of the paint. I will work on doing the blog for the group. I can't wait to post new pictures of the new stainless steel tank that we made for the boat.

Scott,
I don't know if you could have gotten the same results with an Al Gore poster in the barn. He's kind of "dull" isn't he?
Great looking job. What did you use for lung protection?
