Q2: what color of Interflux PERFECTION is the best choice for a classic NAUSET hull?
Q3: between TotalBoat WetEdge "Whaler Blue" and a two-part-epoxy paint, which should I use?
Q4: what brand and what color of tough two-part-epoxy paint is a match for the blue color used by Boston Whaler
To rebuild my 1967 NAUSET my plan is to:
- to sand off the bottom pain;
- to sand off the crazed gel coat
- to use TotalBoat filler where needed
- to sand and fair
- to apply three coats of TotalBoat epoxy, sanding between coats
- to apply two coats of Interlux PERFECTION, using either spray or the roll-and-tip hand method.
I have begun sanding off the bottom paint using an angle grinder and 80-grit hook-and-loop sandpaper.
Removal of the bottom paint is going okay.
I wore a respirator, gloves, and goggles.
To work on the boat outside and in the wind is nice. But I keep a vacuum cleaner running as well [to collect the bottom paint dust]. That results in less impact on my open grass runway--and less harm than when a boatyard does it on the edge of an estuary.
ASIDE: I have experience with [fiber]glass work having built a seaplane using carbon fiber, kevlar, and fiberglass. I have a good shop.
