Bayview that would be flat black like on a workboat.

Re the black I think it's a fad. It's vogue. Cool people zero in on black. Here at Starbucks where there's a lot of people that think the're way cool .. some men and even women are wearing black. Like the're on their way to a funeral. Many head to toe .. black. Black car, black boats .... I just bought an electric heater .. black. Should be grey or tan. The new black heater looks awful w the dust so visable. Everybody thinks black is cool and one must be cool .. one must!

Matt paint her black and I'm sure w you doing the painting it will be dazzling. Just stunning. That is if your favorite filler is perfect. HaHa

Today I heard that we will be having storms and heavy rain all week so I had to change from fairing the hull flare to working on the rubrail and getting it to the stage of epoxy coating to protect the timbers from the water. I finished thru-bolting the rubrail to hull and through the ribs using m12 threaded rod. I then epoxy glued and filleted the underside joint then fibreglassed it with 450gsm tape. I then epoxy glued and screwed some hardwood on the face of the timber rubrail and then epoxy coated it all. I still have to router and then fibreglass the hardwood plank but I ran out of time so I've done what I can today and sealed it all all with epoxy resin. With the rain that's coming I'll now work back under the tarps and continue with the hull flare. Cheers.

Plenty of boat owners over this part of the country would disagree.

Delamination problems, print through of glass weave and large bubbles are evident on dark coloured boats over here even though high temp resins both vinyl ester and post cured epoxy Ave been used.

Big money builds some of them as well, several million dollars cost for some but owners know best and boat builders know nothing apparently.

Hi Mate.
I've had a bit of a privacy scare so I had to delete Facebook and stop posting updates on the forums including pictures till I can find the source.

PM me your email and I'll send you updates and pics that way if you like.

Cheers mate
