Painting Your Boat

I am painting my Rival 32 sailboat in the spring of 2006. My original intent was to have it sprayed, however I am doing this outdoors and the weather window is virtually nil. So I am thinking about using the roll and tip method. Has anyone had any good results using this method. What are the pros and cons of the roll and tip method

I suggest you peruse the following site: http://www.triton381.com/, and maybe join the forum there, as there are quite a few guys hanging out there who have painted their boats by roll and tip.

I npainted my Hull a few years ago using the roll and tip method and it came out great. Make sure you thin using the slowest evaporating thinner you can. Practice on a piece of glass.Too many runs and the mix is too thin. Brush marks mean its too thick add small amounts of thinner. also hull teperature will vary greatly from end to end if your not in full shade or sun. I had to add thinner as I went from the shady end to the sunny end.
When your done make sure to invest in a rubber mooring bouy because the plastic ones will ruin all your hard work.

Thanks for the tip, I intend to use a large tarp over the boat so that I can keep the rain and other stuff off. Sun is a rare item around my area, especially in the spring.
