Re: Bottom Painting and color question

Sorry, the upside down reference has me baffled. But I would add that in painting I made every roller stroke motion from fore to aft understanding that grain of paint is the racers edge. :-)

Looks good! Nice choice for something that works for what you have now AND for what you've got planned.

I'm thinking some pink lettering say "If you can read this, turn me right side up!" or some such thing.......what do you think?

This year I'm gonna try white for that "naked bottom" look. We'll see how it goes.

Its dark like black, but not quite as dark. I do like it with the top. Should be a nice combo when heeling over!

Re: Bottom Painting and color question

Well the wild ride of bottom painting is over. I chose a blue. It came out a bit darker than expected but in the right light I like it. What do we all think? I am on schedule to splash this week probably Friday. Cant wait to get to a slip and begin cleaning/updating the rest of the boat. Thanks for all the input along the way...

Thanks for all the effort on this Medsailor. However I am now thinking to go blue at least for this first effort. I plan to repaint topside in a year but will retain same color blue. Unfaded that blue will be several shades darker and I think a good match for blue bottom paint.

Re: Bottom Painting and color question

hmmmm, I've gone from red to black to blue. Frankly, like the blue best of the three.......

Here is out of the water before changing the red boot strips to blue, and bottom still black.....
