This weekend was the weekend. You can chase perfect preparation on small boats forever, but at some stage you just have to give up and paint, accepting the fact they will end up getting knocked around and the paint will look bad anyway!
I decided on very traditional colours for the hull, a very creamy white and a nice powder blue. I am more than happy with the way it all turned out, especially the colours:

Damn!

That’s going to be a dropper of undergarments. Hopefully of the right person and not random strangers. That would be awkward.

What paint system did you use? Looks amazing.

Spectacular job all around, and a great paint job to finish it off. I love this hull design, and this beauty should have plans flying off the shelf. Well done, enjoy and post some water shots please.

Thanks! I was REALLY undecided on colours and am glad I chose this one. I actually made the final blue colour choice last minute, staring at the cans on the shelf.
The paint system is a bitza- the primer was left over Baslac 2k polyurethane primer, the white was Glasurit 22 line single stage polyiurethane I had left over from an Alfa I owned years ago, and the blue was Norglass Northane (also a single stage), which I had never sprayed before, but had used their clear to coat some floorboards. The Northane is a marine specific paint and is tough as nails and has a very long tack free time, to allow for multiple coats on large surfaces. A side benefit of this long tack time is extra time for the film to self level and make my painting look good!
The prep was machine sanding the hull with 180 grit, rolled on a single coat of primer, then machine sanded the primer after two weeks with 280 grit, then top coats.
I just went out and had a look at the boat again, made me grin.

Put the boat on it's side today to paint the interior and had to take this photo.
Thank you Jacques for designing such a beautiful hull, there is no bad angle to view it from.
