I agree bogie your work is looking really sharp. I hope to get my hull to look at least half as good as good as yours.

Thank you Jeff and Rick!

Rick, the guys on here really helped with the painting process. Probabaly would've had better results if I'd sprayed instead of rolling. I ended up wet sanding the whole thing several times to remove all the roller lines and texture. After that the carnauba wax brought the shiny finish back. I'm sure yours will turn out great

It looks good I used that same Pettit paint on my boat it took a bit to work out how to do it I used a roller when I did my boat it was a foam roller. I found that when i put it on i would dew small areas at at time say 3 feet by 3 feet when i was rolling it on i would work the paint util it started to get sticky you can see the roller is just leaving marks or very small bubles forming if i stopped working it at that point it would come out nice and smooth as few timed i went past that point and it ended up like orange peel and i had to repaint that section. Over the years I have painted my boat 2-3 times every 2-3 years and have had no problems doing it this way.

Installed the centerboard today. Fits great. Tomorrow I will take it back out and give the inside of the keel shoe a good coat of paint before installing it for the last time. I’ll post more pics later

Thank you Jeff and Eric!

I'll be finished with the sanding/ fairing of the cabin in a few days. A small crew is coming over this Saturday to help me roll her right side up again. It's getting exciting :D

Hi Bogie,
Your boat looks really phantastic.. When you turn the boat do not forget to fasten the centre board in the cockpit tight so it cannot move while the guys are turning it. Good luck with the flip.
Greetings from Karl
