I think I remember you were going to paint the decks. Decided on a color?
The hull will be unpainted above the waterline, but sanded perfectly smooth. This bit I am really looking forward to seeing. KM's finished hulls look just amazing.
The decks will be painted, but only in smooth-curved patches, so that any sanding
, masking and painting will be easy when touch ups are necessary. We wanted to avoid paint, but couldn't come up with a better non skid finish. The stick on finishes didn't appeal at all, even though they are nice underfoot.
Feedback here has been very helpful with deck
paint decisions. After the discussion a few pages back we are going for white rather than pale grey (heating issues) and a rectangle on the top of the pilothouse will also be painted.
