Pfffft lol

Anyone that strips a boat to its keel and rebuilds it is hardly afraid of a paint job

Sometime after the splash I'm hoping to post the results of my beer cooler inspection live from the duckboard of Solstice.

- Black cars are difficult to keep looking really clean - boats too. Black easily displays white salt streaks.
- When black goes dull for any reason in any portion that shows noticeably when sun reflects onto it.
- I imagine that black color is a hard color to spot by search planes... if ever necessary.
- Depending on the background... Black often makes things look smaller that lighter colors because it absorbs light.


IMHO - Although black is one of the most strikingly beautiful colors for a boat hull or sides of its superstructure that color's heat absorption on sunny days is just too much. For decks it's a flaming no, no.


Think carefully on color choices for SOLSTICE. Flic should be good counsel on that... you guys final boat appearance is one of the items that will make her very happy to have been part of the choice.


Happy Color Choice Daze! - Art


PS: Don likes everything that's hot! - LOL

Flic loves the look of MOONSTRUCK. So much she wants SOLSTICE to be the same. I 2nd her thoughts but with a twist. We haven't signed off on the colours yet but the two choices are

1.) Black hull, white superstructure and a metallic silver/tungsten roof frieze.
2.) Black hull, silver superstructure and tungsten/gunmetal grey roof frieze.

Might be worth looking into if you can find an installer in your area.

Yeah thought about that halfway through sanding and fairing. Not for me tho unfortunately because I'll still need to paint the boat first so I might as well paint it the colour I want first :-)

Well production has decreased significantly due to that pesky "work" thing I have to do and only managed 2hrs before it got dark. Still tho, I managed to do the roof above one of the windscreens and some repair work to an external radius on the cabin.

Lol thats my mate. He and he's friends that I have yet to remove from the boxes will assist in scarring of seagulls and hopefully save SOLSTICE from getting covered in bird sh*t when on the mooring.

I found... after many years and attempts with different items... that very thin, different color ribbon wafting/fluttering in the breeze does best to repel birds. How and where it is fastened very-near-to bird shat opportune locations is another subject.


PS: Good quality ribbon can last for years of flutter with no fraying.

Who'd have thought working out a functional and aesthetically pleasing pattern for non-slip coatings would be so bloody hard.. Well I think I've come up with something that will work on the cabin. I also did a bit of sanding and filling and a bit of a clean up for my guest Mr B (that I met on here) tomorrow.

Non skid everything apart from a tape width around hatches and fittings is how I have done everything in the past.
Can never have enough nonskid and, it hides a multitude of sins.

Obviously - not you! Kidding aside... Can't you simply keep surface uniformly san paper roughened to creating a tooth hold for high quality paint, in color of choice, with sand added for a non-skid sandy finish?

I recently made our 92 yr Matriarch's house "disable friendly" by building ramp entry to her front door. Used high-grade exterior plywood and painted it three coats. Second coat I liberally sprinkled in 100 mesh sand. Third coat made it look good. Pretty easy to get uniform surface that is virtually non skid. I imagine by playing with (experimenting with) quality marine paints and different mesh sands you may be able to easily concoct a process that is easy to apply and good to look at... as well as being durable for years of "safe" enjoyment. Best Luck!

I see a lot of sins on our roof top and w/o hand rails I'm lik'in the thought of non skid. But moving the dinghy around on non skid dos'nt compute very well. Especially since the dinghy now is a rubber ducky.

Eric - I don't think that fine sand finish would hurt your rubber dink. You pull it up on sandy shores with more harmful items in the mix.

Things are good, working, boating, living the dream! Will have a 3 week holiday coming up, going to gunkhole for a while in the San Juans, then get some stuff done on our house. Cheers.
