Before and After

I've hauled the boat for painting. I thought I'd post a "before" shot and later an "after".

Love that design, What's the draft? Is it a steel hull?

Thanks, She's steel, with about 7 foot draft. Joe Hartog design. I've got the bottom blasted and painted and we're moving on to the decks next. Amazingly dusty operation!

She's designed to hold 20 ton. About a 15'x15' space amidships.

After the prep, what's the procedure to complete? What primer and paint are you using? # of coats? Inquiring minds want to know.

Sorry for the slow come back. I'm using Demet Coat, It's a heavy epoxy primer, then I think Devoe for the next coats. Weather has been hanging me up a bit. Foggy along the coast this time of year....

Wow!! Great color choice. That blue hull makes all the different in the world. I'm impressed.

Outside looks great , but steel boats rust/die from the inside.

When are you blasting the inside to "water white" and installing the 5-7 coats of protection?

Inside is pretty good except for a couple of places. Under and behind a washer/dryer unit that must have been leaking, and down in the box keel. My next project is hand removing all the ballast from the box keel, sanding and painting surfaces,then replacing ballast,and finally sealing everything up in cement. My ballast is made up of elevator weights which are anywhere from 100-150lbs apiece, should be like a vacation yarding those out!

Very nice!

Have you thought of tucking a flying bridge up there by the AC? Just kidding!

Steelhead is actually a sailboat. 2 masts will be fitted and radar,etc will be moved to mizzen mast, no room for fly bridge I'm afraid.
