    2 coats of primer. It's so white I reckon it must be visible from outer space

    Brilliant. Really brilliant. Overexposed even.

    Well done Matt!

    Looks great from here Phil so I reckon it'd look perfect from outer space!

    You'd have to be happy with that?

    You can leave it now and it'll be fine but, it'll go a bit yellow and get harder. So, I suggest sanding those areas that you want smooth ASAP while the primer is still easiest to sand.

    Thanks Rick, will do. I think I need to put a bit of filler where the tape comes down onto the sheer too. That edge hasn't disappeared.

    Good sanding is what it was! Yes 2 coats of primer should do. Although maybe another on the topsides after I fill below the hull/deck tape and sand that back smooth. I want that bit to look pretty good.

    It's a fifty footer. Stand back fifty feet and see if you think it needs any more sanding.

    Actually, joking aside it does look a very different boat. Very very good indeed. And that little bit of sanding will be the icing on the cake.

    I could get one of those bumper stickers. If my paint looks like crap you are too close.

    I multimastered my way into the cabin coaming today, there's a delaminated patch of about 4 in by a foot around a shake. I was hoping I wasn't going to be like Phil and find stuff.

    I didn't, nothing, nada, just clean damp ply. I'll glue the same timber back in tomorrow ,hopefully.

    I wouldn't. I'd get some that isn't damp.

    Hey Rick, was it Corona rollers that you suggested to use for 2 pack poly?
    I remember finding a place in melbourne to buy them a while ago and didn't save it. Now I cant find it for the life of me.

    Yes, Corona. I ordered mine from the US. However, there are alternatives locally now that seem to be okay. I'll see if I can find the brand.

    A good friend and sailor has a Necchi industrial sewing machine for sale on Gumtree. Good for sails, canvas etc etc. Let me know if you want a link, or search for Necchi in SA and you'll find it.

    I think some machines have a flywheel option, a bit of momentum to get through the tough stuff. It will have about a 2 HP motor under the table.

    These rollers from Whitworths https://www.whitworths.com.au/redtree-foam-roller-75mm are supposed to be good for Awlgrip, so, I assume, should be okay for other two-pack poly paints. I haven't tried them but I'm going to. I think the main thing with foam rollers is to make sure that the paint is thinned a bit and the weather's not too hot. Foam rollers leave tiny bubbles as you roll on the paint. These disappear if the paint is flowing okay and not going off too quickly. On vertical surfaces it's also important not to load the roller up too much or the finish will sag.

    I haven't found any foam rollers that are any good with epoxy paint (like Penguard) but the mohair rollers work well so I just use those. HD foam rollers are good with Toplac, as long as the weather's not really hot. Toplac is great paint but very expensive at about $170 for 4 litres.

    2 pack Polyurethane, or some 2 pack poly paints, can dissolve foam. They say urethane - so probably fine. The tight nap will be good for keeping it flat.
    I had success with the 100mm mohair rollers and then tipping. I'm surprised how well it worked, doing a space about 500mm x 500mm at a time.
    It's all fun and games until Darth Vader comes.

    Life keeps getting in the way of sailing

    First it was the aborted trip to KI on Arawana due to someone buying her. But I've still got Romana. So I've given notice at the volunteer job, and I've tidied up Romana for a quick splash to Glenelg just to see if the mast works ok now, with a view to sneaking away for a few days. At the same time I've got a kayak for sale on Gumtree. Tomorrow looks good for sailing. Aaaand now there's a buyer coming round to check out the kayak tomorrow. Clash! Bang!

    Just leave a note saying Gone sailing,if you like the kayak slip $700 under the door and take it. Or leave Sheila or James in charge.

    thanks Rick. I have some toplac for the interior but going norhlass 2 PAC out side. I tried to call them to see what roller they recommended but they were closed for the day. Will try again tomorrow. 👍

    Gyp. I'm not sure mohair will be good enough for the bush?
