I was leaning toward one of those two colors as well and pass the bubbly. Hard to tell colors from the computer screen though.

I am going to try using gator paint for the floor of the cockpit area I have been using PETIT epoxy paint but find it gets scratched up quickly in that location. It seams to hold up well on the rest of the boat. Food for thought

Das Boot

I have used a few DIY linners in my past trucks and I have to said I was not happy wiht most of them. Line-X is the top of the line but it has to be installed by their dealers. About Gator linner I was not to happy with the reviews. Most website said that is to rough and it only comes in black and white. I guess it will be ok for a truck bed but since you are going to be sitting and moving around the cockpit I will not recomend it. One last thing Gator linner is made out of epoxy therfore it will chalk after the exposure of sunlight. Just my two cents. Here is a website for monstalinner that describe all of the DIY bedlinners.

http://www.monstaliner.com/monstaliner_comparisons.htm

I know that it migth be bias but they were on point with 3 diffenent products that I have used prevously. (Duplicolor Truck Bed Coating , Durabak and stoleum Road Warrior Truck Bed Coating ). Also once you put any of this product in your boat it will be almost impossible to remove them.

I agree , any liner with ground up rubber in it will be real coarse . I have monstaliner liner on my trucks rocker
panels for over a year now with no fading and with temp swings from a 100 degrees to neg 30 with no problems.
I have also used it in my storage areas in the bow of my build. Plan on using it in the seat boxes and also the decks.

Thanks for the advice so it is back to square one and just repaint more often. Still on paints I did my cockpit and deck areas with bright white on a bright sun day something we do not see often in Vancouver Ha Ha the glair is hard to deal with so this time I am going to do the cockpit area with a light sand colour it might help cut the glair. Again thanks for the in put I may be old but not to old to take advice. The AD16 has been a good boat and has not let me down last year was the first time I took it out into the salt water and it handled the trip to Vancouver Island and back no problem I usuley sail it in a lake near Vancouver.

Wow! That looks great Stuff. You are really building this boat beautifully. There is a lot of surface areas in this little design isn't there? Your coating material will work out great. I love seeing the progress, keep it up.

Steel wire with removable cushion on top...
imho, With the leaning angle, any back rest may cause water bailing issues..

I built a back rest into my boat the same as the fellow in SA did I find it a handy place to store junk and my beer dose not fall over the side it also helps on a cool day to keep the wind off my back but I do not think there are any two of these boats built exactly the same. That is why we build them so we can display our one ideas. I know mine works well for me.
