Re: Painting a 15' sailboat

This link shows a line drawing of the Albacore 15 and the water line is shown:
ALBACORE sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com

As Jeff_H said, I'd be leery of putting a boat like that on a mooring. The tall mast and short waterline might make it prone to capsizing. That said, I had a Lightning 19' for a few years that I kept on a mooring and it never capsized at mooring. I had to install a bow eye in it though. I also had to put anti-fouling paint on the bottom as it was in salt water.

At least this boat of yours does not have an engine!

Re: Painting a 15' sailboat

Keep it simple... roll on the interlux brightsides - use the interlux primer- dont try to mix brands... be careful not to apply the primer too thick... practice a bit on the bottom of the hull so you can hide your mistakes... nobody will ever know... A showroom perfect finish is only going to limit your use of the boat cuz you wont want to scratch a perfect finish would you? Your goal is to get the boat sailing !!!!
