Awlgrip paint


You're correct. The Awlgrip eggshell white matched up very nicely. It's a little shinier since its not oxidized (yet), but other than that the color matched perfectly.

It looks a lot better than the yellow strontium chromate primer!

JohnRPollard Most of the PSC masts and booms are painted with Awlgrip egg-shell white.

SVArgo I should have said commericially viable. What I meant by commercially available is that the paint offered by the Awlgrip group of Akzo Nobel is a product that is produced by a reputable, stable company that sells in both the wholesale and retail markets, and offers a small business like Pacific Seacraft a sales structure for that is attractive in the price point for the quantities that they would be buying.

That has been my experience from them in previous shipyards I have worked for.

sailaway21 (most factories do buy something commercially available!) (g)

SVArgo Camraderie,

I think that you're right, its got to be close. I would imagine that the factory would have been buying something commercially available such as Awlgrip.

SVArgo Sapper,

That's all in the plan. Luckily, the prev. owner still has all the original documentation from the factory with parts lists on bulbs, etc. very good stuff.

I've got two huge cans of McLube ready for the task.

camaraderie Awlgrip makes an eggshell white and it is a 2 guess is that is it.

Sapperwhite While the mast is down, take pictures and measurements of all the mast head gear. Also, you should double check the nav lights and write down what bulbs you need to keep on hand for spares. Maybe hit all the moving parts and sail track with some Sail Kote or similar.

SVArgo Yeah, I got the paint and the specs, its a two part polyurethane, I'm just not sure what aftermarket prodcuct is similar.

I agree that I don't want to do any of this from a bosun's chair.

Sapperwhite Give the PO a call and confirm which is the mast paint. Once it's up, you'll have a hell of a time painting the mast from a bosuns chair.
