Outer hull priming and sanding is complete!!!! That's a ton of prep work but it is finally ready for paint. Now switching gears to the inside. Time to sand it down....

Nice skiff and great restoration, Would you post a pic of the primer and paint cans? I see you rolled the primer, how are you gonna get the paint down? Thanks

I have a project this fall and will need to apply gelcoat after I fix a floor. Might roll it on after seeing your efforts.

Roll on instructions are per manufacturer. Most YouTube restore jobs are roll on too. I was told it requires a special spray gun due to its thickness and must have a forced fresh air respirator to deal with once it's turned into a mist. Only professionals should spray it.

I'm no pro so that knocks me out!

Thanks for product pic and link Froghunter. Looks like Discount has many boat repair products and is helpful to me. Keep the progress pics coming!

Decided to work on the console today. Removed all the hard ware and add on's...kinda looks like someone hit it with buckshot!..... and yes there was sanding involved. Next is to fill all said holes and sand again.

I have the exact same burn bar if you happen to need a replacement for some reason.

I may hit you up on that. This one was homemade and not too pretty.

New sander works great. No pictures but I got the holes filled and rough sanded out. Tomorrow I will work it down to 320 grit.

Looks good brother! Wish y'all were at the coast with us! Going fishing in the morning then after lunch we are going to meet up with the kids at seafair in Rockport.

If all works out we will have shore power by Monday. We are thankful to have the generator but so tired of running it.

Keep up the good work brother!!!

Just ordered the epoxy paint and plan on making a fiberglass patch on the deck Saturday. Time change has really put a hurting on my progress.

This is the worst problem I have to deal with. Previous owner said a blister formed here. He cut it out and painted over it. After cleaning it up I found there is more glass under the paint. So hopefully this will be an easy fix tomorrow. Aside from cosmetics the boat is rock solid.

Dude keep it up. You will be fired up when it is done and you put a fish in the boat. Looks great and you are doing a bang up job.
