No problem using the flattening agent with the Penetrol. I've also used the Corona brushes for over 25 years, and they are very good quality for the price. And don't be afraid to add a lot of Penetrol to get the paint to flow nicely and lay down flat. It won't alter the color at all, so start with about 20% by volume and see how it works.

FYI, you will lost a bit of life of the finish if you add a flatting agent. I don't know how much difference there will be, but if you don't like shiny then it doesn't much matter. Boat is looking good, I like the color.

I'm really interested in this build.

Colemanfire, did you get the brush stroke issues worked out?

SORRY GUYS!

I have not been able to put the last coat on the boat, the real world kind of got in the way. I've been super busy with work haven't even looked at the forum till tonight. I put it off the last coat for a while, with the cooler weather I didn't know how that would affect the roll and tip streak situation.
BUT!! I have plans to paint tomorrow.

I promise after the holidays I will get back hot and heavy. I will be flipping and starting on the inside.

Will send pictures tomorrow.

John
