Hi all- thanks for the welcome.
from rubrail down she looks good. Cabin doesn't look so bad...no shine really but not chaulky either. Nonskid decks need some attention and some minor repair on gouges here and there and then the owner sanded down the fiberglass below the flybridge to prep for painting.
Here are some exterior shots:
Video of her exterior:
Luckily her interior is in excellent, excellent shape with no water intrusion damage anywhere and finish very nice. What the heck, here's a vid of her interior (which just needs some clutter control and scrubbing down):
As far as painting the exterior, she has not been painted before this. The area below flybridge is discolored, according to the owner, due to his sanding her down in preparation for painting. Rest of cabin you could probably get by without painting her, though it would be nice to see her all shiny.
Brightwork is in excellent condition and just refinished, some already taken down in order to paint.
As far as "best" if i do it myself i'd want something that offers easiest application with the best reasonable results that can be done by hand and not spraying. it may be a mute point b/c I think seller told me he already bought the paint so if he did I guess I'll just be using what he got which I think is 2 part epoxy paint....hopefully not just white spraypaint from the hardware store.
How do you all do the nonskid areas?*
We're very excited about this boat. We sold out 2005 silverton 38 sport bridge (gas powered) this past winter in order to get a diesel powered boat, etc. Can't wait to close!
