Trying to decide if I should paint under my gunnels. I was thinking since I have to coat them with epoxy, why not just tint the epoxy white or does it even matter to paint under there. You would have to lay down to see under them.

If you have the tint then I agree, just tint and YOU will know it looks nice under them.

I never painted under mine, and haven't seen the undersides of my gunnels on my previous boats since the day I bonded them down. Tint won't hurt anything though.

At least with the tint, I'll know where I've coated.

It will take 3 or 4 coats with tint to get a solid color. The boat is looking good! :D

It was a struggle to get all of the epoxy glue on the cleats before it hardened. Another person mixing would have helped. I made it just in time before it setup too hard. Sanded a radius on the inside and outside of the deck. Its ready for fiberglass after I fill a few holes. Should I use biaxial or cloth tape over the joints?
