Thanks for the suggestion! We have been looking for some type of paint that would be flexible enough for a wooden boat. Some of the product we used already has cracked while the boat's been sitting on the hard allowing the wood to dry out and shrink. We plan to put our solar panels up on the pilot house so it won't really matter what color the paint is anyway.

That's an awesome paint job! Nice to see that he painted it BEFORE he installed the hoses, and hose clamps!

I wish you the best of luck with your project although I don’t think luck has much to do with it I do wish you success however . I love the Beebe designs i wish there was a website dedicated to Boats like this i think a different forum such as YouTube would be much better than this trawler forum as even the run-of-the-mill YouTube video receives more exposure

"We have been looking for some type of paint that would be flexible enough for a wooden boat."

Oil based paint that still has lead in it works best , but hard to find.

Not that hard to create if you can find the materials locally.

Good hunting ,

I'm guessing those that suggest this haven't flogged themselves to death on a big project before.

Is there any energy or spare time left to make YouTube videos?

If the answer is yes, perhaps you aren't putting enough hours in to the "real" task at hand?

This wasn't my brother rebuilding the engine - only me working. My wife and I are trying to figure out how to keep expenses down so we are doing all our own work. Makes for slow progress but everyday something gets done.

Unfortunately I could only get some of the hose clamps - Trinidad is running out of stock of a lot of things and good hose clamps are one of them. I refuse to use the cheap serrated ones that rust and cut into the hoses, waste of time. So now I must wait until the new year to complete the job.

My sentiments exactly! We are so tired by the end of the working day that neither of us has time to edit video. When you get your head stuck in a job it's hard to remember to stop and take those videos but we have been snapping a few pictures 👍
