sailorjim99 G'day Starwindy
For a local news site, you could start with ninemsn.com.au
Try abctv.com.au

Yep..There was a second boat found. It was a runabout about 20 or so feet.
It had paperwork from New Caladonia or Nuemea.
It must have been in the water for ages because it had a crop of mussells growing on it.
I dont really think the Bermuda triangle has shifted.
Also I read in LAT.38 about another yacht having a mishap sailing from New Zealand to Australia.

A lot seems to happen downunder.

sailingdog Hey Eryka... Eryka's point about scrubability is a good point... how do you clean it?

Any truth to the rumor of another boat turning up crewless down your way? What is a good Ozzie online news source?

Cheers!
Further to my PM if you only use the interior on rare occasions then you are probably best to stick with paint and accept a degree of condensation. My previous boat was raw painted glass and we survived , just needed the odd wipe down if we were inside on a cold night.

There something in the thread on the abandoned cat ref the second boat found.

eryka Starwindy, don't know your circumstances but you might want to think about scrub-ability (i.e., mold & mildew) - will textured paint be difficult or impossible to battle mold?

I'm curious about the crewless cat too!

sailorjim99 G'day guys
I am a painter in OZ and from what you say, you want to hide some garbagey old surface.

If a bit of roughness wont bother you, we have a product here called TEXTURE COTE. It is an acrylic, very thick, can be tinted most light colours and is applied with a texture roller. It is designed to hide the rough work of builders. (Painters make the worst builder look good) The roller sleeve has the appearance of a hull scrubber. Looks like fine wire but is a plastic material.(Like a brillo pad)
You should see texture cote around malls, shops etc.

Can give a small to very rough texture. Dries very hard and dont rub against it too hard.

Ask one of your local house painters. He should be able to put you on to what it is called where you are.

Love your attitude...Forget about the appearance...Go for simplicity..
Your DA man..

shantijwk Starwindy,
I would suggest using a vinyl liner that has a ľ”foam backing. That should cover the remaining surface nicely. I purchased some from Sailrite. They have several styles to choose from. It comes 54” wide and is reasonable. I removed some vinyl hull liner that was about 30 years old. I scraped the foam off and then sanded the residue, coated it with epoxy, sanded, faired the surface again with epoxy and then applied the liner using a marine grade spray adhesive (3M 8080). That was over kill but it is all a learning experience right? I realize no one likes to work overhead but I have to believe that the results will be vastly more appealing and nautical than sand paint….
Good luck, Shanti

tdw If the carpet was directly on to the solid glass (i.e it's not a lined or cored hull) be aware that simply painting the glass is going to give you a condensation problem.

sailingdog I think the Interlux 202 will do a pretty good job of the adhesive removal. Recommend you wear a tyvek bunny suit, gloves, googles and respirator when using it and scraping...since the fiberglass and cleaner are both rather nasty things..

The part of the fiberglass you see that has been coated is probably gelcoat...not paint. Gelcoat is definitely an option for you.
