People seem to like it; and the boat remains quite cool, even in 90 plus degree July weather. I don't find it too hard to keep clean. Won't let me post a link because I don't have enough posts, but pictures can be seen on the web site, sv-restless.com. Hope this helps, Bob

Guys here's a link to Bob's boat it looks great!!

Chipping and scratching

First time posting here. I was pleased to see this discussion, as I am thinking about repainting my Bristol 40 yawl. Was last done in about 1995, I would guess. I had assumed that Awlgrip was the way to go, but another Bristol owner noted the difficulty of touching up nicks and scratches and said he would not be using awlgrip for this reason. I had another boat that was awlgripped and I tried to use a touch-up kit on some scratches and it looked awful. So my question is, is there a two-part high gloss, high abrasion resistance finish that can be touched up? I was hoping maybe this was what "awlcraft" was; but no clear indication. Indeed, no one seems to want to talk about this problem, except for a woman who posted on a Hatteras net and raised the question. Any thoughts? Thanks, Paich

Paich-

Awlcraft 2000 is probably the paint you're thinking of. It is also a two-part linear polyureathane paint. Halekai will probably respond to your question in a bit.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Two-part topsides paints

Thanks sailingdog: I looked for halekai's prior posts, couldn't find them yesterday but got lucky today. By far the most informative so far, and I think I am now more inclined towards the acrylic two-parts for their easier patchability. (I don't seem to be able to avoid getting the odd scratch and nick!) I will look forward to anything further halekai wants to add. Happy New Year! Paich
