Painting Sequence

I pulled my Endeavour 32 out of the water yesterday. My plan is to paint the topsides with Interlux Brightside and the bottom with Bluewater copper 45. My question for you is-- should I paint the bottom first? The topside first? Or does it make any difference?

Re: Painting Sequence

I would prep EVERYTHING and keep in mind the paint rarely runs UP

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Re: Painting Sequence

Nice work! How did you apply the paint? Was it roll and tip or spray? How many coats of paint did you apply?

Re: Painting Sequence

I sprayed the 545 primer as while it has a certain level of danger its pretty easy to control

The Awlgrip topcoat was two coats roll and tip as the stuff is just crazy dangerous when your dealing with a 29' boat

The roll and tip work window is much bigger also

Re: Painting Sequence

Al,

I doesn't look like you got an answer.

Top first because it may run down. Also, many boat use a white topside paint and a dark bottom paint. It's much easier for dark to cover light than vice versa. Another reason is that with the topside you want to be careful with the finish and not worry so much about the waterline, so just overrun that with the topside paint. When you can shave in the reflection, carefully apply painters tape to establish the waterline and boot stripe and paint away. Use good quality painters tape. $15/roll is money well spent. One thing to keep in mind as you're selecting paint is some are incompatible. If it has been painted and you don't know what's on it already, use a single part like EasyPoxy. If you know that it's a 2-part epoxy already (or bare fiberglass) use 2-part poly like Interlux Perfection.
