Mate everything will be sprayed. Iíll be using a devilbiss compact gun with a 1.3 Cap Needle and Nozzle on a 10ltr pressure pot.

The technique is the same; 1 light dust coat, wait 20mins for it to flash off, spray a medium coat, wait 30mins to flash off spray another coat and see what the coverage is like and possibly spray another coat.

The hull will be done first up to the gunwhales on day one then the following day from the gunwhales up to completion.

Iíll be using Jotun Hardtop ultra (polyurethane) on top of the Jotun Pengard HB Epoxy primer.

WOW - You've got it programed! Thanks for letting me/us-all know more about your artistry.

Only thing I can say... is... wouldn't it be more sanitary to do from top down so mist-gravity wouldn't mess up what's below it? Just a thought - you're the pro... something I'm not when it comes to painting application such as you mention.

Can hardly wait to see your painted creation!!

Cheers - Art

Today the 800ltr water tank and the 800ltr Diesel tank got some attention by means of relocated filler necks and welding up of the old inspection ports. No sanding this afternoon. Case of the ol CBFíd.

You're gonna have plenty of mates to chose from for any type assistance during Solstice's first months of water operations. What a great swap-n'-trade for tools etc as you build... "A day fishing"!

Yeah trade where you can mate. Iíve done work on peoples boats for fishing trips etc. I did one last week for a mate. He needed some fibreglass work on his transom so we worked out a scuba diving deal. I havenít been diving in ages so worked out well.

Matt me mate!

Word "final" holds similar scope and breadth to the terms/words "all", "never" and "forever". "Final" can be a good-fun thing, a feeling of relief, or possiably bring sadness... maybe even joy. Such a mobile context of various emotions does the term/word "final" successfully and singularly enable a person to emote.

In this case... if I may say so... in your case... in the context of your "final sanding" and paint prep I conjecture the emoted, gleeful meaning of "final" makes you want to have a big fn' assed party!

Get It On - Bro!!!
