Re: So Memorial weekend this happens......

Thanks guys. It just looked so awesome after I painted it the first time, there was no way I could let it go looking the way it did. So it only took me 2 1/2 days to get it this far. The other side isn't polished yet. I have just a little more work to do with the 1500. It will get there soon though. Maybe tomorrow or thursday.

Now if the deck hardware would just install itself.

Re: So Memorial weekend this happens......

I finally got the boat painted. I spent a huge amount of time stripping and repainting the deck. That's a real PITA, and I'm still not done putting hardware back on.

I had to rush the paint job because the lake is running out of water and I was on a borrowed trailer. My friend needed his trailer back in a bad way, so instead of rolling and tipping like I did last time, I sprayed it. I never have liked the look of a sprayed boat. It's just too hard to keep a wet edge, no runs, etc. So as I suspected, I hated it.



So I did what the interlux rep told me I couldn't do successfully. I polished it. First with 1500 wet sand on a rubber block, then a buffer with a coarse pad, then a fine pad.



Until the reflection looked like this:



The repair is on the left side of this picture.

Nice work.
No, mechanical repair. I've done body work, but you probably wouldn't want me to do it on your car. If I was a real body guy, I would be sailing already.

Fiberglass repair was learned out of necessity since I bought a boat out of what might as well been a junk yard.

And thanks BTW. I try.

Re: So Memorial weekend this happens......

I got the hole glassed shut.
I laid up a layer of glass mat on the outside, then screwed a piece of plywood over it.


Then from the inside I laid up 2 layers of roving, and 1 layer of glass mat. I used 4 layers of glass mat to reattach the v-berth shelf to the hull.


The next day I removed the plywood.


And put on a layer of epoxy thickened with fairing filler.


Now to sand it down and paint.

You know you can. Dock lines are still there, except one.
