I need help with paint.

Post by jacquesmm » Fri Apr 03, 2015 4:55 pm

System Three is developing a new polyurethane paint and asked me to select 3 boat builders to test it.
I would prefer 3 builders that have experience with paint. We expect them to accept a phone call or two from System Three to discuss the paint.
Each will get one quart of white paint and one quart of S3 primer.
Larry or ?

Email replies preferred.

I'm in the process of rebuilding a 16' Mitchell (http://forums.bateau2.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=59374) and will be painting it. I built an FL14 and painted the outisde with Interlux 2 part primer and perfection and the inside with Rustoleum Marine Paint. If you're still looking for volunteers I'd like to be considered. I will be repainting the outside and inside of the Mitchell. The inside will be marine plywood with resin over it and the outside is the original gelcoat. My email is sethtela@gmail.com

Thanks.

I would offer, but I don't think you want to be shipping it over to me. Plus I only have a little 8' racing dingy thing to paint at the moment, although I could do it with a pressure pot if need be! And although I can compare it to others like Awlgrip and International and never used any other System 3 stuff before - never seen it over here.
