  1. Gloss is good if you want to keep it really clean from mould etc but you need good prep. Interiors dont need LP paints, single pack are fine. Toplac is excellent paint, Durepox has the advantage of not needing any topcoats. Resenes do waterborne enamels, they are also fine. Spraying interiors can be problematic without good gear, best to avoid it or get someone else to do it.
  2. a briski flapper will work fine too, common size.

    Generally speaking (I could be wrong) media and sailing dont really get on. The sport is slow and technical from a spectators point of view but lacks wide appeal of another dull sport like test cricket. The nicest way to put it is live sailing is an acquired taste from a spectators point of view. The last AC had every brain in the media business, vast gobs of money, the pinnacle of yacht racing in a stadium format and yet it still failed to really capture a wide audience. The interesting thing about the AC (and MotoGP, F1 etc) is the human backstories, the infighting, the politics- the co

    Sailing stories are for the sailors, the wider public are just not that interested. It doesnt matter how many media channels you pump it out on, its still just another yacht race which unless you are really into it mostly incomprehensible, even for sailors like me its a bit of a "ok so what?" If its about pleasing advertisers with views... dont know anything about marketing so cant comment. Live vid updates, now thats interesting

    At this stage it's fishing and finding a nice bay for the evening
  7. get a couple of mohair 5mm knap oil based rollers
  8. I would advise against thin foamys, use a mohair with a 5mm knap. I used to use the yellow ones in the misguided belief that multiple thin coats was the way to go but after long talks with the paint techs and subsequent experience has shown generous paint application is the way to get a good film build up and a smooth finish. Talk to the paint tech for your particular brand on how to do it, they all emphasise managing film thickness and preferably airless spraying for the best result.
  9. Further thoughts, as time goes by the paint gets less effective. its never as good as the first 6 months unfortunately but it still works ok after a few years. Ideally you want your cleaning routine to match your haulout plans so that by the time you do most of the paint has ablated. What you dont want is a build up of ineffective paint that starts flaking. In the old days with hard AF's you had to go through the scraping back to basecoat routine regularly as the toxins leached out leaving a hard useless matrix behind but with modern AF's not so much. I use Ultra which is meant to be "hard' b
  10. It depends on where you're parked, I get 3 years from 2 coats in a marina, on s mooring in the current, 18 months.
  11. The rule of thumb with antifouls is simple, one year one coat, two years two coats etc. To a point the more you put on to get the right film thickness, the better. Lay it on really wet so it "melts" and smooths out. Dont roll it out like you would a normal paint, keep the tin stirred and the roller loaded. Dont be afraid to spend money on paint, its cheap compared to the cost and hassle of hauling. Want real advice, call the techline and ask a boffin.
  12. not sure you need a special soap for that job, sunlight still foams up when we rinse dishes with salt.
  13. Id check to see if the hull is painted or still gelcoat, photo 1 looks like paint. If gel then buy 1/2 litre of flowcoat (prewaxed gelcoat) and some yellow tint, google the colour match process, be aware you cant untint anything! You can use the same method for the deck repair. If paint, sadly you'll need a primer otherwise the paint might fall off plus youll need a lot of coats. if it was me Id just go to an auto paint place, buy a can of primer/filler and a can of yellow (closest match) and spray it.
  14. Sadly, once you've got the goodies off all thats left highly likely to be 10 years in the driveway and an old boat. If I was down your way Id come over to watch the digger do its thing. Every seen a ferro boat getting its last rites, unbelievable how quickly they turn into a pile of rubble.
