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 .
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..
