Thanks for the comments,the name came from girlfriends 15yr old son I gave the boat to him and his two younger brothers.The boat is/was a 1974 peterborough lake boat. cut off the keel and filled with thickend epoxy and a strip of cloth then just sanded it down and rolled on 2 coats of varathane plastic enamel right on the front lawn with the neighbourhood kids and bugs(can't see the bugs from a distance

Tried posting before but fr some reason it did not go through. Censorship? :D

The primer is always a good idea although I know of some who skip that step. Most PU primers dry fast and sand easy. Do a good job of filling small scratches etc.

Siren, wish I had been sailing to Bermuda. No such luck. I think my previous response would have been more techie without the typos. Still a Klutz at typing after all these years.

Haven't had much to say lately. Is that a sign of old age? Good to be missed though.

Can you see any roller marks when you are up close? How close do you need to be? For other painting projects I find the small hi-density foam rolllers leve the fewest roller marks.

wotrock,no can,t see any roller marks,I was quite suprised at how easy it was and how good it turned out under the circumstances.Just painted my clipper prospector today and didn't have as much luck ,couple roller marks but not a big deal the hull was really scratched (some real deep) but put new gunwales on and figured i may as well give it a quick paint job before the season really gets started.First trip of the season yesterday through calgary
