Questions about boat repairs with our resins and fiberglass: hull patches, transoms and stringers, foam, rot etc.
Bottom coated with cracker larry recipe. Still needs a wet sand at 220. Od green paint being removed from hillsides to show a blue boat that was sprayed with white gelcoat at some point. It's solid and I look forward to slathering in system3 primer.
Going to start the long and arduous process of priming and paiting While the boat is upside down. I am going to clean and dewax a few times then fill any scratches through the gelcoat with total fair. Sand to 120 grit then prime once to check for areas that need rework. Fix any other issues with more fairing then 2 coats of rolled on system 3 primer. sand to 320 and roll and tip with system 3 topcoat. Then caulk the cap to hull joint with lifecaulk and get ready to flip the hull back over. Any major flaws in this plan?
System 3 primer. Once it dries I get see thru of almost everything below. Stirred and mixed correctly. Just getting very little build and coverage. Using redtree mini mohair rollers. Lays down to a very mild orange peel just very transparent for a primer. Any ideas?
I have some pinholes in the sole and casting deck. Laid down 12 oz biax with marinepoxy and phenolic microbaloons to fill the weave. They are large enough to show up in system 3 primer but too small to easily fill with Total fair. Do you all think I could force them full with neat epoxy and a Bondo spreader? I don't have any closeup pics to share.
