Normally I’m a Pettit girl. I used West Marine sea glass pro part polyurethane. It is manufactured by Pettit for West Marine. I cleaned and primed the boat. It has 2 coats on it and I’m thrilled with the result. Next time it needs to be painted, it won’t be by me. Huge job and rolling and tipping yourself isn’t easy.

Thanks for the info Donna. Your paint job looks great. You may have given me the confidence to try i myself. Everything I've ever painted looks like a third grader did it.

The boat across from me had a yard do theirs and I made the mistake of asking them if they did it.

Then if you are not going to paint the stripes on my stack, may I move onto your boat?
Give me your address so I know to where to forward my mail?
Of course if you move your boat down to 'my' marina, I own my slip.
Your boat is larger than mine, that is assuming you are not considering the swim platform as included in the OAL.

(Oh marriage, to me, is totally out of the question. Every time I hear the word "marriage", I throw up in my mouth.)

Donna: Great result and an attractive theme as well. Kinda reminds me of that joke: “Fisherman looking for single woman with boat. Please send photo of boat.”

Lol! OAL is 44. Rent will be $1,100.00 a month. Includes all utilities. You pump out. Nah, changed my mind. I love her and spend all my down time with Southerly.

I was willing to move onboard with you, sell my boat and let you keep the boat here for free and other considerations. (innocent look)
Oh well, so much for MY Plan A. CHUCKLE
Did I mention, I can cook?
