Yes, I have tons of brightwork that I have been refinishing in my garage and work room. Basically, every piece that could be unscrewed is at home- and mostly done. I have a garage full of parts- rigging, chainplates ect. that I am waiting to install. I just needed to hear it from others. Thanks

Rockter will become famous soon enough
Alan :

I really would wait until the summer. If I tried that in my beloved Loch Ness, in winter, there would be condensation everywhere and nothing would stick.

Like you, I have been taking home all the bits I could over the winter. It is so much easier in the front room beside the wee heater.

Wow ...50s and 60s...?

Around here it's -12 and I'm waiting for days where it warms UP to 40* so I can paint...

A couple 100 watt bulbs and a small electric heater and I can keep the interior 55 or above as long as it doesn't go much below 20* at night...of course my boat is in a barn and out of direct weather...

On the other hand I'm not doing "paint" rather Cetol on the interior (and we all know what a sin that is...)

OTO,OH...don't have the condensation problem when the humidity is all frozen and laying out on the ground...

Wow Squidd, I wouldn't even get out of bed at -12....let alone paint. We are having a warm winter, it hit mid 70's this weekend. I do believe I could have painted, but, alas, I continued to work on the brightwork at home. I now think that everything else should be done before I begin painting. The paint is the easy part. Come to think of it, I still need to replace all my window seals. I mainly just wanted to get the primer coats down to make it seem like I was making progress. I have been working on this boat for over a year total and it does not really look any better than when I bought it. My question was in regards to proper paint application at different temps. I didn't want to lay down a coat of primer only to have it not attach properly due to the surface temp of the fiberglass being to low. Ambient temp is easy to control. Surface temp is not. And, as others have pointed out, condensation becomes an issue as the temps drop. So....better to play it safe and wait. The way things are looking, come March, everything will be prepped and ready. Then over a week the boat will magically transform with each new coat of paint and varnish. Leaving me with a fully restored interior...I hope :/
