Finish Paint...

Started on finish paint today. We are using a 2 part polyurethane called Amershield. Very nice gloss and its supposed to be very durable and abrasion-resistant... a good thing for hull and topsides. This is the final grey that we chose for the hull. Will do one more coat on the hull tomorrow with a hotter thinner added to accelerate the dry time (less of a chance for flying bugs to find their way into our fresh paint). The wheelhouse, hand-rails, and hatch coamings will be gloss white. The decks will be nonskid with a buff/ivory colored topcoat. The big rubrail, smaller caprail, and edge around the wheelhouse roof will be gloss black. We also have a nice bright signal red for the boot-stripe (between the hull and bottom paint) and the top of the stack.
