Re: Painting Hull

I used Pettit easy poxy and rolled it on. No mixing, no thinners, no faffing about. Sanded the hull with 180 grit and used a foam roller.

Re: Painting Hull

After speaking to my dad, he was wondering if Imron can be used below the waterline instead of VC17 since the boat will be trailered and never kept in the water for more than a few days.

Re: Painting Hull

Most paints are NOT happy below water

If your time off the trailer is less than time X (48 hours ?) it may not become and issue

If you go above time X most paints will blister

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Well I did not get within 10 feet, but from 50 yards away it looks great. I was over on b dock and spotted her wearing her new colors in her slip. I was hoping to repaint Anthem this spring, but never got the time. It is definitely on the schedule for next spring.

Re: Painting Hull

I have just spray painted my hull .
I used a 2 part paint system and the 26 foot long hull used a full one gallon can of paint.
1/2 a gallon of hardener and just over 1/2 a tin of paint thinners.

The materials used I thought would have been enough to paint the hull and / cockpit and cabin .
But No.

The primer was a dark grey and I used 1/2 a gallon for the whole boat.

I was under the impression I had done a good job of filling all the tiny pits and pinholes. WRONG.

I spent another 4 days of filling and sanding the smallest of pin holes.with paint stopper and at long last I thought i was ready I was again still finding pin holes to fill just before I started spraying..

I got a lot of tiny pin holes as ALL the woodwork was removed from the whole of the exterior and remade in Fibreglass.
So after a lot of fibreglass sanding and filling I was still left with a lot to do.

Well I sprayed the hull only yesterday and it all seems worth it well for a 50 year old boat it should look in good condition when I have it all fully finished..

see here PAGE 9 I have cut in the new bottom paint and used electrical tape for the masking up works and got a very clean crisp line..
I shall be using the same tape for the lines above the bottom paint..

Re: Painting Hull

Here is another option to consider. The "Signature Finish" paint. I have been using it on the interior and exterior of motor and sailing yachts in Florida. It comes in a variety of colors and can also be used as just a clear coat. The great thing about this polyurethane is its ability to level out over imperfections. In other words, if you paint the product on and then pressed your finger into the paint leaving a dip in the surface and then leave for about five minutes you would find that the paint had leveled out. It is quite amazing. I have used this product on the toe rail of a 85' sailing yacht and have also sprayed this product when refinishing and repairing the soles throughout. You will need to sand with 80 grit before applying and can be applied wet on wet with about 30 minutes between coats. the paint will have a nice shine, but if you buff it after the desired coats have been applied and dried you will reach a glass finish. I also used the Signature Finish paint on a 106' motor yacht 4 years ago and still today the finish looks as good as when I painted it. I have used both Awlgrip and Perfection products, but find the Signature finish paint as an amazing product, not only because of its longevity but also for the ease it offers when applying it. You can find this product based in Stuart, Florida. As for below the waterline, there is a new product that is Eco-friendly. It is a fairly new bottom paint and is starting to show up in boatyards throughout the United States. Good luck with your project.

It came out better than I expected, and thanks.
Brightsides is holding up so far, I am hoping for 2 years durability (at least). I still have to paint the deck.

Painting the hull is NOT something I'd want to do often for sure.

To the OP... did you manage to paint your Vict 18? I always loved the lines on those.

Re: Painting Hull

I have since added reg numbers and still wanna add gold stripe to the side. Regardless, this thing still turns my head whenever I walk by.
