I'm approaching the last step of my Catalina 22 paint restoration project and was hoping for some opinions on whether or not to flatten the deck paint.

The freeboard is painted with Interlux Perfection (medditerranean white). I'm also painting the deck with Perfection (smooth surfaces with med. white and grey on the nonskid). The nonskid is a molded diamond shape and I did dull that down quite a bit with the Interlux flattening agent. Now the question is: Should I flatten the smooth surfaces as well or leave them glossy to match the hull? I'd sure appreciate an opinions.

Thanks,

CS

Thanks for the replies. Barquito - That's very nice looking. Can't wait to get my teak back on. Hopefully it'll look as nice as yours does. I really like the addition of the jib sheet cams. Those cleats tend to be a pain.

I sprayed the first coat of perfection last night. I forgot how runny that stuff gets compared to primekote. Looks like I've got a few runs to wet sand now.

Anyone else have experience with the spray application of perfection? Interlux recommends 25% reduction with their 2 part thinner (2316). When I do that it almost seems thinner than water. They also say 14 seconds in a zahn cup which I don't have... Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Carl
