Thanks Warby.

I was doing well till I dropped my RO from the top of the boat and busted the air inlet thingy! Called it a day and had a cold beer!

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

KB - Keeping at it when the going gets hot is tough - have you considered investing in a swamp cooler? Probably not useful in high humid but...

In the boatyard I have hooked up the portable A/C - The boat is not sealed but the a/c helps a lot and I'm not paying the electric. It has made working from 12-3pm bearable here.

I'm doing pretty good with the fans. Just gotta keep them blowing on my back and I'm good. I can usually get 4 or 5 hrs work in a day before it gets too hot. Once the boat is upright and the walls up etc. I have a portable AC I can put in that will help.

Thanks for looking in.

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

So yesterday was exactly 3 months I've been fairing, filling & sanding this whale! Still a few days away from being able to shoot some primer on it though. The list of items to be addressed is getting shorter!

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

What primer are you going to use? I am looking for an inexpensive primer that can protect epoxy while I work on the deck

I bought this.

Bottom Protect™ Epoxy Primer Gallon Kit

A colleague of the wife's cousin or something is a part owner in the company or something. Didn't get a break on the cost though.

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

Not bad. I was thinking on SW Micropoxy 646. It is the same price but no shipping. I just want to protect the epoxy as I work my way around the deck replacing the nonskid. When I am all done I will find a nice topcoat. Has you ever heard anybody using Micropoxy for a deck primer?

Nope, sorry. I did have a buddy use a similar Benjamin Moore produce on his boat with success. Sent you a PM.

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

Sorta hit a milestone today. Keel & bottom panels sanded. The RO sander came off the top of the boat never ever to go back up again!

I've got maybe another day sanding on the sides & bulwarks & corners and then she'll get cleaned up for primer. I do have a couple of low spots on the sides that might need 'nuther coat of epoxy. I think they're too deep for primer to hide. We'll see tomorrow when the sanding is done.

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

That's It! I'm done sanding! 5+ hrs today sanding the chines & stem by hand plus I went over the sides & transom with the Flexicats one more time for good measure. Tomorrow I'll clean it all off and wipe it down. Depending on the weather I hope to start spraying primer on it on Wednesday!

Beer Time!

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

Rain Delay

Looks like we have 5 or 6 days of rain in the forecast. Temps in the low 60's & humidity through the roof. I can't spray the primer in these conditions. The shed roof leaks! *sigh* That will definitely have to get fixed when the boat has been flipped.

Until the weather clears I'll start work on the Gin Pole & rigging. I picked up all the hardware I'll need yesterday. The lumber for the rolling frames was delivered the day before.

Standby.

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

Well we did manage to get a lil' break in the weather so I decided to give this spray painting primer thing a go. I made a mess. I don't think HVLP & high build barrier coat primer work too well together. The spray pattern was tiny, about 2-1/2" wide. Took forever to get about a quarter of the way around the boat so after lunch I switched to the roller and it went much faster.

I know it looks blue in the picture but it's not, Thank Gawd!!!

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

looks great rick!
heres hoping the roll over goes well,then the fun stuff can start.....like up and down that ladder 50 times a day!
i really reccomend building a platform at gunnel level once she is turned over,after building 6 boats climbing up and down get "old" very quickly on the fitout stage.
all the best alex
