I have been thinking about how to reinforce the hatch side. The hatches are cored with divinycell and I am concerned the bolts will pull t...

Re: Cvincent's PH18

I rolled on two coats of system 3 high build primer this weekend. I have a few pinholes and low areas to fix but overall I am happy with the finish. I plan to use EMC for the topcoat. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/88547/Primer1.jpg http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/88547/Primer...
