Finished up applying and wetting out the mat this weekend. Spent a while knocking of the high spots today and put a coat of resin on for the purpose of filling the weave with a flat spreader. Not sure if i accomplished anything or not. Will have a look in the morning and see  :unsure:

I put another coat of epoxy on for weave filling purposes today and am now looking towards a hi build filler. My brother told me hit it with awlgrip hi build primer then sand but to be honest i really do not want to spray in there as the clean up would take to long. I took of to the store today and found some Petit protect hi build primer which i took home with me. Now i am looking at it it tell me is for the bottom. Anyone here ever used it or better yet can i use it all over not just the bottom? Have been looking on line and can not find an answer

Hello lads.

 

Another newbie joining the fray.

 

Looks good Riggs, making headway at a good clip. At this rate you should be splashed by Christmas.

 

Thanks for posting all your progress pics (to you and all those before you). I enjoy reading them and seeing each person's perspective on things.

 

Keep up the good work

I used the Pettit primer.  Works good so far.  When applying with a brush I did not get as smooth of a finish.  Rolling worked better.  I made the mistake of painting in my basement shop and the fumes lingered for a long time.  After that all other painting was done in the garage where I could open the garage door and let the fumes vent much quicker.  The Pettit paints had a strong odor but not as bad as the primer.

Go to Wal-Mart and buy a 20" box fan and set under the partly closed door. It'll move enough air to make life reasonable.

Hey Guys . Yeah that Pettit primer worked nice but man it is some wicked smelly nasty gear. I ended up with a stand alone ac unit and a mini split on full tilt with a fan in the door while wearing a ventilator to apply it. Wife was complaining she could smell it in her studio which is a good 150' down the garden :)   

 

It does seem to have done the trick though, gonna get on some sanding over the next few days then maybe some paint. I am looking to do a satin finish but have not found any satin paint that is compatable yet but have not looked to hard yet. Am also thinking along the two tone lines Lotus used on his OC20" out in malta i like that look. Other than that it is looking like i will be having a turn over party next week some time :) Yea

Mix the Electric Sapphire with Jade Green 40/40 and add 20% white and you'll have one of the coolest Turquoise around. I did this about 10 years ago on a Catalina 22 and wow . . . (I got lucky). Don't try to take a picture of it, as I wasn't able to find a film or digital camera that could cope with the color. It came out either too blue or too green and never imaged properly, but in real life it looked great.

Thought i would post a few pics.  Most everything seems to be moving along as it needs to other than the loss of my brain cells due to my growing addition to paint fumes. On the good side the temp here in the south along with the humidity i am hoping will drop allowing me to open up the doors. If not my boat is going to be owned by a cabbage :)
