Annie's New Paint - Part 1

Annie got her first coat of topside paint today.

I used Jamestown Distributors Totalboat Wet Edge paint coupled with Totalboat Brushing Thinner and so far, I'm very impressed. The paint has great flow and was perfect for "Rolling and Tipping," (however, the roller and the tipper need some more practice). The job went smoothly once we settled into it, but there will be a need for a second coat and sanding between the coats. (Thanks to Paul for helping).

All in all however, I am pleased with the first day of painting. I will let the paint set up well for 24/36 hours, wetsand with 220 grit sandpaper and then apply a second coat. Part 2 will be posted once the second coat is finished on Thursday.

Fair seas and God bless!

    1. Thanks Dan... there are some spots I have to work on that the pics don't show... first time doing "Roll & Tip"... she'll be stylin' after the 2nd coat though.
