Don Silsbe Posted July 3, 2022 Report Share Posted July 3, 2022 I just finished modifications to my Two Paw8, including painting her with Devthane 374 2- part polyurethane. It came out a horrible mess. I’m hoping that someone can tell me what went wrong. I mixed the paint 4:1, and allowed it 20 minutes induction time. I then added 20% thinner (Awlgrip reducer). I used a mini velour roller and a 3” Corona Urethaner brush to tip it off. Halfway through the process, I even added about 15% more reducer, to make up for evaporation. It’s hot and humid, here in the Carolinas— 90+ degrees and about 80% humidity. But it never laid down. The brush marks are horrible. I had simply rolled the first coat, and did not tip. The orange peel was so bad, I sanded and tipped the final coat. “Final” is the operative. We leave for a 4-week vacation in 7 days. There is no time to amend my sinful ways. I will be using her as-is, and putting my shame on display to the world. What did I do wrong? I need a mentor to begin spraying these boats. That’s what they deserve. Am I stuck with this until then?
