Question Next Project . . .

Now that the Keel tankage project is winding up and the shaft log is moving along nicely, I'm thinkiong about deck paint. The deck is 3/4 ply with 3 coats of West epoxy on it. I sanded it between each application. My plan is to use 3 coats of 2 pot poly paint. The first coat will be a different color than the last two, and the last coat will get a non slip substrate mixed in. Is this a reasonable plan? Opinions about paint choise?

Re: Next Project . . .

I put the first coat of PPG Amercoat 450H on the forward deck yesterday. Tonight, more sanding and painting. I also fabricated a through hulls to mount the sea cocks on.
She had 4 1.5 inch thru hulls, all of which were cut out and welded up. I didn't like the idea of all those big holes in the hull. I plan to use a single 1.5 inch seacock for engine cooling, the others will be much smaller.

Re: Next Project . . .

This is Sherwin Williams two part "Macropoxy" with "Shark Grip" mixed in:



This is one coat of color followed by one coat of rolled on mix. The Shark Grip is clear plastic sand that doesn't show dirty when the paint gets scuffed. It also stays suspended in the paint after mixing.

Nice work. Is the shark grip compatable with Urathne paints? Thanks for the picture.
