Re: What to paint?!?!?!

One other thing to think about if you are considering a dark hull colour. Dark colours really show imperfections in the prep work. Lots more time sanding, filling and fairing to make things look great.

Re: What to paint?!?!?!

That makes sense for sure.
Is their a special type of varnish I should use for wood that is more uv resistant than others? Or just regular old varnish?

Sure, Interlux Perfection Plus Boat Varnish, Wood Varnishes & Yacht Varnishes | Interlux

Awlbrite over Awlspar varnish
Brightwork

I've never tried either of these. I have a fiend who swears by the AwlBrite over Awlspar method. He is a perfectionist and gets great results.

The problem with two part poly, paint or varnish, is that it is very hard and not very flexible. It will crack where ever the wood moves, think joints. AwlGrip addresses this by recommending several coats of a single part varnish and then finishing with a coat or two of their two part poly clear for UV resistance.

Interlux claims you can put their two part poly, Perfection Plus, directly on wood.

I think I got it, I'll give it a shot and make a thread when I start working on it and see how it all comes out!

I do plan on a dark hull, it's hard to explain but either 100% black with partially white deck (the boat has rectangle type sections on the deck for grip. Kinda like kiwi grip stuff) Or a deep deep blue with a cream deck. If I did black it would go perfect if I decide to rename her but I'm still not sure
