Valiant 40 progress part four, tenting and final masking.

Today we built the tent for the bow since this monstrosity stick four feet out of my shop. Stillrainning came by with his truck so we could get the lumber.



We got the tarp up and strip nailed just as the showers hit.



Kinda big...



We also got the boat masked off or bagged and tagged.





Below as well.



The masking wraps completely under the hull to protect it. The topside is double sealed as well.

Tomorrow is final prep day before I put on the first color.

How are you keeping your masking lines horizontally "plumb"? What do you measure off of?

The sight lines run on the edge of the bottom of the caprail above and at the waterline below. The other tape edges are one half the width of the tape away from the surface to paint. When free laying stripes and lines, you set markers at specified distances from a measured line. Then you tack one end and sight along the markers while laying and point tacking the tape from one end to the other. I used to be able to get within 1/64" over 50'. You never seal your tape until you're certain it's dead on. I used to lay up stripes by hand on aircraft all the time so it's no issue for me. I did all of my numbering and letters by hand. I detest stencils because they always wrinkle or bleed under the edges.

With surfaces as large as these or aircraft, any screwups jump out at ya like mountains. Prep is king....

Charlie,

Nice work you're doing. I wish I could hire you.

Can't wait to see the topside paint job. What color will it be, or is it a surprise?

Impatiently waiting..

"Go Simple...Go Large"

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.


The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.
