    I couldn't agree more!

    the first coat of paint really made me nervous because it stayed tacky for almost 3 days even after I had tested two or three times on new epoxy sanded epoxy and varnished epoxy, but the second coat which is going to be the finish coat, is drying hard. I checked yesterday, cannot make a fingerprint and now matter how hard I push down.

    Need to get some lines up to the ceiling so I can get upside down boat higher up, then I can finish the fillets under the thwarts.

    Paint update!
    I've had the boat hanging upside down almost two weeks, the paint has cured quite hard!

    Going to flip her back over in the next few days & start working (groans) on the inside again.

    I'm convinced there is no way to make a centerboard or daggerboard slot look nice!

    I think the niceness of them is the space they don't take up. They have a pragmatic esthetic that I appreciate. I have absolute faith that you'll somehow even that sow's ear into a visual silk purse

    I'm thinking some type of tapered plug for the bottom and top with a bungee cord in between when the dagger board is not in. I don't know if I should paint the inside of the slot black or same as the hull, but I'm towards black because it hides so much.

    Guess I'm not done with painting the hull 😱 I started sanding a "little bit"and a "little bit more" now it looks like I'm adding a third coat, that's okay!

    I'm now three times impressed with the quality of Rust-Oleum oil based paint!
    Low odor, fast drying, nice shine, fairly hard when dry!

    Switched over to frog tape I've used it before, and liked it better than the blue 3M

    PS: I think I've developed a mental block about finishing inside the hull...

    I would never have thought of the skeg finished bright, but I love that look! The contrast really pops! Well done!

    Been experimenting with different grit sandpaper between paint coats 220 seems to be the with magic grit, 320/400 is too fine, 100 and 150 leave scratches that show. I haven't tried 180.

    Sanding in one direction seems to produce better results than the back and forth that most of us all do almost absent-mindedly.

    I think the interior paint scheme is going to be non-skid partially filled fabric bottom panel, sides will be almond, thwarts will be bright, parts of the transom called the doublers will be finished bright, the problem is the fillets, if they get painted they will look terrible, so I'll probably use masking tape and stop the paint right at the fillets that will be finished the same as the thwarts,

    I discovered there is room to do a layer of glass inside the centerboard trunk and still let it have the "rattle factor" but I should have done that before it was assembled.

    2 coats epoxy, 3 of helmsman.

    looks good!

    It can be painted black and have a metal band added "someday" But probably not by me 😇

    Trunk squeegee... Note to self: "never ever assume inside the trunk is "okay* unless it's completely finished INSIDE, before, assembly"

    The homemade squeegee didn't work, fortunately I had a couple 3" sponge brushes, it's smooth inside the trunk now so I'm happy.

    I forgot to mention, I now use small 3in wide sponge rollers for just about everything, poly and varnish roll-on very nice, but it is very warm in my basement which is weird because basements are supposed to be cool

    I've been very disappointed with 3m recently. Have had good results with frog tape a while back. I think I'll go back to it.

    The paint lines on the transoms where done with 3m, they came out really crisp, but whenever I do a paint line I use a very thin coat on the edge of the tape first, let it "set" before I do the whole surface.

    Not enjoying the masking job before me!

    I'll trim the edges of the tape with a razor blade but again, it's impossible to get sharp edges going against fillets.

    What I'm doing is taking the paint line halfway up or down on the fillets. It's easy to see why going monochrome is it much easier and less time consuming method... But we want that varnished mahogany and Ash to "pop" don't we?

    At this point I am thinking the bottom panel will be painted also.

    Meanwhile.... for the front porch which is another project that I should live long enough to see finished... Replaced the pressure treated post with something built to look compatible with the columns on the front porch.

    What's wrong with that!?!?! I think it looks great! And one step closer to getting wet which is when it looks best!

    Denise...I may have to ask for your expertise when it comes time (if I ever get there) to paint my boat. Your masking and color choices look great. Very nice...and the level of detail is second to none.

    Thanks gents! I think it's because I don't have any goal or plans for this boat...I can I can spend the time thinking about the looks and the planning of even such a small project.

    I've come to realize woodworking and boat-building is what I love to do most. using the boats is really not something I look forward to doing any more because the season is so short, andmy heart health and intolerance for hot weather really inhibit my activities in the summer.

    Then I get to mask the paint so I can finish the varnish! Groans & moans 😨

    Couldn't wait! The paint only got under the tape in a few places which I should be able to scrape or dissolve all the rest has really nice lines following the curvature of fillets.

    Looks fantastic Denise. I wonder how may half-built S&G boats are sitting in garages right now, waiting for someone like you or Ben Sebens to come along and finish them...
