    Default Caulk a seam between two paint colors?

    Hi Folks. I'm painting my plywood boat project. Now when I paint a room, the last thing I do is to run a bead of white painters caulk where the ceiling meets the walls, it leaves a nice clean transition line between the two paint colors. On my boat, the deck, cockpit and wales are all grey everything else is blue (i.e. the outside of the hull is blue). These to colors meet in the corner where the bottom of the wale meets the side of the hull. Is there a product I could apply here to cover my transition line like I do in the room painting example above?

    Yes, masking tape.
    Paint one colour. Then apply the tape. Run a stripe of the finished colour along the edge of the tape. This removes the risk of the other colour bleeding under. Then apply the other paint scheme. Remove the tape.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.
