Painting topsides

Some more pics! **

Note that I am still missing some trim and stuff that I *will be installing...teak grab rails on the side of the flybridge, the venturi shield, the stereo up @ the bridge (you'll see the big hole there), and trim around edge of flybridge, etc.


VERY happy though. Now I have to make sure NO ONE scratches her!!


Also, note my nice new and refinished nameboards- stripped them down and put on about 9-10 coats of Epiphanes varnish, front and back.

Yep, she looks good. Bound to go faster now. Just slipping through the air and all that wee bit better. There is just something about new paint. What was used Tony. 2 pack Awlgrip or Interlux Perfection...or other...?

RE: Painting topsides

Tony,* She looks great,* Sure beats painting her yourself. I think you made the right call to go pro.

Enjoy!* JohnP
