The hull finally got painted last week. Took a lot of time to prep the boat and the spraying equipment and shop. Thursday Rick sprayed on the topcoat of Awlgrip Off -White. I was his hose slave and guided the two air hoses and gun hose over and around the staging and obstacles while he concentrated on spraying. We did four coats and by the last coat the lighting was getting to be a challenge being an overcast day and it was hard to see how we were doing. The result was great though and am very pleased with the results. The photos with my point and shoot camera are not very good and everything is so shiny the photos are full of reflections. But here it is anyways to get the idea.

The topcoat the next morning. Time to unwrap the boat.


  1. Oh my!
    She's Beautiful! Nice color combination and I love how the wood stands out too.

  2. Thanks, really quite happy with it. It feels like the more you paint the more the varnish will stand out where you want it to.
