Still needs last coat of paint but will wait until boat is finished on the inside. Used System Three paint; roller then tip with brush. Not really happy with my sanding job or the smoothness of the paint but I think it will catch fish.

Couldn’t live with the paint job. Rescanned hull, tried better rollers and tipped with a foam brush. This time it looks much better.

No, it is dry. The system three paint has a pretty high gloss. That is what i am struggling with. It show every imperfection on the sanding job. I am making headway on the roller/brush marks and that helps I am not a painter so still reading articles; sanding and working on the final coat. Bottom looks ok but I am not happy with the sides. How are you doing?

Salty, sorry late reply; took a job at a golf pro shop and sort of got in the way of the boat. My only advice is the same as you read on the forum; sand until you think you are done then sand some more. Getting the boat into sunlight and getting the paint on really showed the imperfections. This is not my first build but the first one to try to do a good paint job. It seems to me that the building is relatively easy on the "Skill level", finishing is an art and takes experience and/or a lot of patience. I am still excited about the boat and once it is turned over the issues will go away. Good luck, keep posting photos!
