I am sure you already know this, but...
THAT"S A PRETTY BOAT!

Oh Man!! That is a beauty.
I saw a boat finished in Imron at the WoodenBoat Show a few years ago. It almost glowed. Until then I wouldn't have thought Imron would work on wood. Wrong again Norm.
If someone here cannot give an authoritive suggestion for an undercoat and DuPont wont, you might look at Sterling products. I think Featherfil is one of their two part sanding fillers. I used it, mixed with microballons, to fill the weave on my fiberglass airplane then primed with DuPont's recommended primer and top coated with Centari plus hardener. Not quite Imron but not to bad.

I'd consider a lower-gloss paint than the LPU stuff. See the Doug Hylan article in WB a few months ago.

Great boat ... BEAUTIFUL!!!
Looks pretty darned solid too!!
As a fellow CC owner, I love to know more about her!!
About all I can say is WOW!! :D She is one beautiful Chris! What is in her for power? She certainly is timeless, If you didn't know Chris's you could think she was built in the 50's. You should be proud (as I'm sure you are).

A pretty girl, Dan.
Thanks for a great post.
Keep 'em coming!
I would hope that's what my boat looked like after restoration, not before...
Really pretty boat!
