Aventura 33

< Back to Aventura


Now that the topside paint had had enough time to cure, I began the final masking process with a narrow strip of solvent-resistant fine-line tape at the top edge of the boottop (i.e. lower edge of the hull paint).   This tape would help the final line be crisp and clean.  Afterwards, I covered the vinyl tape with regular 1″ masking tape as completely as possible.

With the critical edge masked,  I covered the rest of the hull with paper and tape to protect against overspray.

Finally, over the course of a few hours, I applied three coats of snow white gloss topcoat to the boottop.
