So yesterday was exactly 3 months I've been fairing, filling & sanding this whale! Still a few days away from being able to shoot some primer on it though. The list of items to be addressed is getting shorter!

Beer time!

Oh yeah.I got a lot of sanding ahead of me.My boat is a couple feet narrower in the beam than yours,8'6".

We have some debt that will be paid off next year,and I have a home I been remodeling.Then the Admiral said I could have at, and she may pop in at the boat shed.

Put her to work on the boat! I put mine to work helping out!



What's the old saying? 'Gas, grass or ass, nobody rides for free', well I changed that up a bit, 'Diesel, Dinner or Manual labor (like doing the dishes), nobody rides for free!'

I could probably get some work out of her.She helps me with auto and household repairs.

LOL! I failed miserably using the Gas,grass,or ass bit.I do like like the Diesel,dinner,or manual labor better.That may actually work.

Sorta hit a milestone today. Keel & bottom panels sanded. The RO sander came off the top of the boat never ever to go back up again!

I've got maybe another day sanding on the sides & bulwarks & corners and then she'll get cleaned up for primer. I do have a couple of low spots on the sides that might need 'nuther coat of epoxy. I think they're too deep for primer to hide. We'll see tomorrow when the sanding is done.

Are you going to paint the bottom to the boot stripe, and then roll,or paint all the way to the gunnels?

No. Just to the chine. No need to do it now. It'll be just as easy to do it when it's upright. I won't be finish fairing the sides & painting until the boat is nearly finished.

That's It! I'm done sanding! 5+ hrs today sanding the chines & stem by hand plus I went over the sides & transom with the Flexicats one more time for good measure. Tomorrow I'll clean it all off and wipe it down. Depending on the weather I hope to start spraying primer on it on Wednesday!

Beer Time!

Is that chine sharp enough to cut hot butter?

Rain Delay

Looks like we have 5 or 6 days of rain in the forecast. Temps in the low 60's & humidity through the roof. I can't spray the primer in these conditions. The shed roof leaks! *sigh* That will definitely have to get fixed when the boat has been flipped.

Until the weather clears I'll start work on the Gin Pole & rigging. I picked up all the hardware I'll need yesterday. The lumber for the rolling frames was delivered the day before.

Standby.

Well we did manage to get a lil' break in the weather so I decided to give this spray painting primer thing a go. I made a mess. I don't think HVLP & high build barrier coat primer work too well together. The spray pattern was tiny, about 2-1/2" wide. Took forever to get about a quarter of the way around the boat so after lunch I switched to the roller and it went much faster.

I know it looks blue in the picture but it's not, Thank Gawd!!!

Did you try adjusting the gun to widen the spray pattern?There should be a knob on the back of it to adjust the spray pattern.It should move the center pin closer or further away from the spray nozzle.I also run an inline dessicant filter, and a regulator with a small gauge, at the gun.I spray between 30 and 45 psi at the gun,usually.I leave the compressor at 175psi or whatever it normally gives the best cfm rating.My compressor was HUGE,200 gallon tank and 3 phase 240v motor.
