  • Just make sure you don’t stay past what your work visa allows...
    Got a late start . Had to go pick up the camper . They ran an hour late getting it done ..
    But I did manage to get 1 coat of primer on at least .. Spraying down inside the boat bottom is a bit of a pita ! I can’t reach the bow without climbing in there so that kind of rules out back to back coats .. Kinda hard getting the gun at good angles ..
    Had to use the full face mask .. Tried to wear my glasses under it but was leaking too much around the edge so I took my glasses off and shot it blind ..

        • Ehh , turned out ok . A few grainy spots and some pin holes .. I may sand and try and roll and tip it .. I did a test spot with an old foam roller and a chips brush to see if it would lay down .. It seemed. lay down ok ...

                          • Sam, She is looking like you Knew what you were doing!! To clean the motor I'd use tome TSP in a garden sprayer and soak her down 2-3 times. Then Power wash her. You have NO IDEA how envious I am that you have a Wooden Boat!! If I live long enuf, maybe I can live up to my name and finally build a WoodOnGlass boat!!!!

                            • Sam, the boat looks great.

                              I myself like to use the foamy engine cleaner for the first gunk removal or two, then liberal amounts of green stuff and a scrub brush. pressure washer may remove paint.
