The paint shows better in the pics! Got a bunch of dust and a couple runs in it...

Rushed and got the hullsides done yesterday, theyre gonna have to be redone. Didnt do enough test sprays, thought i was good to go, had the fluid knob turned out a bit too much on first tack coat and it was run city. Looked like an avalanche of paint on the first 6ft. It looks good from about 5ft away in the right angle hehhh. Its awlgrip so no cut n buff. Will probably reshoot in awlcraft (had the awlgrip kicking around already so i used it).

Gonna wait til the insides ready for paint and reshoot hullsides then i reckon

Terry thats why im nota painter, and hate painting! Its nerve racking. Too much to easily go wrong and when it does its usually $$$

The rest of it really isnt bad. But i cant leave those runs! Theyre real hard to photograph, gotta see in person. I know i can lay down a 6" job... I painted the steps white too, should contrast more when its right side up.

That is going to be one cool little skiff when you get it finished...I like the toe kick...studying your tools..looks like you mostly use air..and of course a lot of manual boarding...I recently bought one of those long air sanders but have yet to try it out. Curious about the spray rails...does it change the ride at all? hard turns? I was tinkering with the idea on my 20 MA that has been sitting and in need of attention. Nice work as usual!

Thanks gents.

Gotta use pneumatic. Lighter, smaller, fits in tight spots. Not gonna board much in here. I will start with one sometimes just to see whats going on and where i need to focus w the machines. On the big surfaces ill usually start with an 8” electric sander/polisher with 60 grit. The air file/board is great. Gotta keep it moving though.

The consensus is the rails definitely help i reckon. Got to watch em in action for awhile on my 20 when we towed it, knocked the water down quite a bit. The ones on here are even wider and turned down a bit more. As far back as they are on this one they may add a bit of stern lift too which probably wont be a bad thing. We will see!!
