Sorry Pac but someone used that word re the sundowner buff. You can call it reddish or w a touch of magenta or whatever. Don't worry .. it's not girly paint and you won't need a bunny tail to go on your stern. That's why they call it "Sundowner" buff. Like red in the sunset?

When I mentioned the GB Beige I wasn't suggesting you re-paint it because the color was bad. I like what I see.

You can see the straight Sundowner Buff color in my post #56 on the cabin sides. You may be able to see the hint of red (not going to use the P word). I'm going to overcoat it w three can tan.

Thanks Manyboats . Maybe once we take the green tape off it will look different. It looks beige from some angles .

To paraphrase Lloyd Bentson...

I know pink....in fact pink is a friend of mine, and that, sir, is not pink!

I don't think it looks pink either . Maybe some of you guys have some of that "Purple Haze all in your brain" left over from the late 60's

We had a few minor complaints from folks at the dock about the paint fumes .My only response was "sorry for the buzz but there is no charge" . "How about a beer "

Ok you guys are right it's not really pink but kinda peachy . I finally got it out in the sunlight . I guess the basement is not a good place to mix colors . Glad we didn't put the hardware back on . We will have to repaint in the spring . Can't deal with this color !

How about if you let it get a year's worth of UV? Maybe it'll either fade or you'll get used to it.

Does coral sound more manly than peach?

Hi Marty,
We've decided to use more Sundowner Buff. Like retain it on the cabin and perhaps elsewhere. Plan on putting darker coats on the decks where the 3 can mix is. And we've found that while wearing certian shoes we need some anti-skid.

I'll take some pics but I lost my i-mac so it will be difficult. For you just downsize your pics. I'll PM you about that. I usually downsize mine to about 800 KB and post 4 or 5 pics at a time. You can load them up 4 at a time and post 12 or so when you finally post.

Very timely info as usual... Pack Mule, you mentioned painting your deck. Can't tell from the pic but do you have factory non-skid surface???? I'm starting my prep work to do a topside paint and would love to re-paint my decks. I have the fns surface and am not sure what issues i may run into such as filling in all of the valleys and defeating its purpose.....tips,hints, ideas????

The roll and tip did not go as well today as in the past . Too many widows to cut in around and couldn't move the paint fast enough . I plan on sanding out lap lines and just going with super fine nap roller on second coat and let it go . Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't .Good thing William is not pristine . We repeated " it's just a boat " several times today . It was still a nice day off from work . Sorry guys no pictures just yet . Plus it was great way to spend our forty-second anniversary .

How'd it go?

Is the super fine nap roller the same as a varnish roller? I want to do our doors and are looking for any suggestions.

I find that foam rollers work well for varnish as well as urethane paints.
