old boat, neophyte owner painting

Tail end of last sailing season we purchased a 1965 (approx.) Paceship Mouette which is a 19 footer. Deck paint was faded badly. Decided to repaint deck.

Kind of going by gosh and by golly. I've made a couple of short vids. If you see anything that needs improvement or that would make the job easier -or- if you see me making any glaring mistakes please let me know.

Thank you.

Have a Great Day,
Jim

Just remember that in any good, decent paint job, 95% of the work is the surface preparation. If you don't do a good job prepping, it won't look good for very long.

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.

Cute old boat.
I would think about removing as much deck hardware as you can and replacing it all after you are happy with your paint job. This will definitely take longer but it is a good idea to re-bed all the deck hardware anyway to keep water from getting to the laminate beneath it.
A good bedding compound is Butyl tape which you will find at RV/hardware stores. Butyl Rubber Tape - Flexible tacky adhesive Sealing Tape
Alternatively there are marine products like 3M 4000, 4200 which will be more expensive and likely messier to work with.
Have you decided on a paint for the topsides yet?
