Thank you for the cheering, today was a very productive day as I have time for preparing the offset of glass fiber around the skeg, sanding the excess of epoxy and the glass fiber which was more than 2 inches of each side

Hey! I think you missed a spot!! :lol: :lol:

I do not like sanding so much, but you have done a great job. Bottom looks ready!!

I have a question folks, should I paint directly over epoxy or should I apply primer before, the manufacturer of the paint which is a two parts epoxy paint saids on their tech data sheet that could be both ways... also, all the sanding until now was made with 80 grit sand paper, should I use something finer before painting ?
And last, I was thinking in using epoxy with graphite over rub rails what do you think?

To prepare for paint on the boat projects I’ve done, the final sanding was done with 220 Grit paper. Followed by washing with clean water, then followed by wiping down with clean dry cloths or paper towels. After masking off areas not to be painted, I’ve always used an epoxy primer, which often reveals some unnoticed flaws. Then after a final round of touch ups, fairing and sanding, another coat or two of primer before using the top coat paint.

The epoxy with Graphite powder will slough off slightly when rubbed against something. As a durable rubrail coating it will protect the boat but might leave marks on whatever it rubs against.

Your skeg looks really good. Great job fairing/blending it into the bottom.

I just discover a small hole about less than 1/8” in the hull, when I was ready to paint, what is the best way to deal with it ? Any suggestion?
