Well, I think it is time to change the title of this thread. Spent 4 hours taping for non-skid just have to sand and roll. The next step is to get it out of the garage and get the hull painted. Can't wait... http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/14360/DL08274.JPG http://gallery.bateau2.com/albu...

I have looked at e few threads on non-skid application. I was watching John Gravith-kith and he used a roller and a piece of cardboard to even out the non-skid. He would dip the roller in the paint and then roll it out on the cardboard to even the non-skid. Then he rolled it out on the deck. Has any...

Actually the thread mentions interlux and sterling. I believe that they are regular polyurethanes and not water reduced, I may be wrong. I think they use an alfatec hardener like xylose.

Wet sanding S3 LPU

The literature that S3 has for there paint is very vague. I have planned form the beginning to wet sand and buff the final coat but they do not give a time frame for it. I know that with Emron and Awlgrip you can wet sand and buff in a matter of days. With the awlgrip 545 you have a window then it i...

Well there is nothing like seeing all the faring camo covered in a nice white primer, it feels good. Know I have real motivation to complete this project. Question: At the temperatures that we are having know, how long do you think it will take for the primer to completely harden. The can says one w...

Non-Skid

The nonskid that you guys sell for the S3 paint, is it the S3 nonskid or is it just silica sand?

The paint literature talks of S3 nonskid consisting of a clear polycarbonate plastic aggregate.

I know that no one is fond of using screws and epoxy together. However this is not being used for a structural item. Because of ease and availability I have chosen to go with this product. I a using it for probably the same reason as Joel had originally had planned, hatches. My hatches are on the se...

Epoxy PVC bonding

How well does PVC bond with epoxy given a clean sanded surface?

I am thinking of using some PVC lumber for a couple of things, all of which are non structural.
