I am currently restoring my 1963 13' Sport and have a couple of questions. Should the hull be all white? What is the easiest, most durable finish to apply? What are the color codes for the interior and extrerior? Can somebody offer good advice on repairing the area where the rubrail mounts? It has broken away as a result from striking the dock. Thanks!

There is not an "easy" durable finish. You either regelcoat or paint. There are supporters on both sides of this coin. Alwgrip 2 part paints are great and easier than re-gelcoat; they also have BW light blue for the interior(not cheap.)
on the rubrail.. sounds like removal and reglass but it depends how damaged
to determine if its a marine tex repair or if you need to get out the fiberglass matting.
every repair you want to make can be done by you. every repair has also been addressed (atleast in general) over the last 6 months or so. See if you can reveiw the old posts on gelcoat and marine tex type repairs and on painting projects. I do have the Awlgrip #s for the light Blue paint if you decide to go that route.
good luck. These restorations are a bit time consuming but not all that hard and can be done a couple of different ways depending on what product you feel most comfortable with.

Hello Capt.,

I am nearing the painting stages for my '66 13' and was wondering if you could forward those paint # recommendations on to me please.

Thank you!
