Reply To: What type of boat is best!!
I would recommend painting on a warm day where there is no wind (perfect weather to pain/ spray in) if you are outside make sure it is NOT cold as the paint will take a long time to dry also make sure that you make the grass or floor is DAMP as it stops dust from flying up on to your wet paint (dust is the biggest paint rival). The main thing which I do is spray. I sprayed my decks with TWO PAC and the end result is nice, I got a compressor for £100 from a mechanics magazine which I get, I mean it is cheep considering you can use it hundreds of times and it always produces a professional finish they are fantastic machines for the money which you pay. I would also recommend that you use two Pac as it produces a quality gloss finish all the professionals use it all the time. Another hint is to prime the boat ect really well always sand between cotes and make sure there are no runs. The primer and under cote (pre cote) is the most important as it makes the gloss extra glossy. (between cotes wipe the boat over with a dampened rag dampen the rag with white spirit) The final cote of gloss should be thinned by 5% or around that area so that there is a mirror like shine. This also gives less resistance as you sail over the water. I forgot to mention if you paint in a garage buy some cheep throw away overalls (can be used more than once) and also spray the area well with water first.
I hope this helps please ask more qusetions if you are confused or need help!!
