Aquasport 3

< Back to Aquasport


Now that the boottop primer was dry, I lightly sanded it, then solvent-washed to prepare for the topcoat.  For this, I chose a platinum gray paint that I had on hand from who knows what project, but I thought it would be a nice subtle color for this application.  Actually, the choices in this project were as much about what I had on hand and could use up as they were about final appearance.  The paint covered well, and later in the day I decided that the one coat was ample, so I removed the masking tape, completing the paint work on this boat.
