Bottom Paint

Filed under: Building - Before Flipping, Building - Painting — tomlarkin @ 12:47 pm

I rolled on 2 1/2 coats of red Interlux Micron CSC bottom paint using the ‘Rollerfoam’ rollers. It went on well, although pretty thick. The last half coat was as recommended on the can – adding extra protection to the high-wear areas at the stem and keel. I saved about a cup from the gallon for touchups when I launch.

I made the waterline about 1 1/4 inches above DWL. I hope it looks OK when the boat is in the water.
