First filler coat on right side bottom panel. Used 6” plastic trowel at near 90 degrees. Used three batches of 3 pumps each. Look reasonable to you guys?


Yes, that looks very good. I like how you were careful and applied neatly (or at least cleaned up while wet). If you leave a lump, you have to sand the lump. If you own or can make wider spreaders for your subsequent coats, it'll be good.

Quik Fair applications for filling obvious low areas at tape joints and weave filling is complete. Next steps 1) finish up this round of sanding, 2) additional fairing of rails and keel, 3) apply graphite powder quite coat and fill low spots, 4) prime with System 3 Yacht Primer.

My Question: if I decide to coat the bottom with epoxy/graphite, can I do that over the primer?

I intend at this point to use EMC Quantum Polyurethane on the entire hull but want to know my options.

Thanks

Yes you can appy the graphite over the primer but i would use the s3 primer instead of the emc primer and use the emc paint on top of that

Thanks Salty. I was planning to use S3 primer on either and it’s good to get the confirmation that it works under EMC.

2 part paint measuring question

Post by GuyP » Thu Aug 08, 2019 9:31 pm

Any tips on pouring out of cans of System 3 Yacht Primer? I’ll be using graduated mix cups and mixing maybe a pint at a time. What’s the best way of getting it out of the cans without making a mess?

Holes around the rim for paint to drain back in: Image

The first pour out of a full can always makes a mess but not too bad after that.
