Re: Monte Carlo swim platform

Looks great!

Were there any "gotchas" that you discovered along the way?

Where did you get the struts?

One thing I am not sure about yet is whether to stain or not.
My recommendation is no; leave it natural.
1. It looks better natural IMO
2. If you burn through when sanding after epoxying it no biggie.
3. Less work

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Thanks all! I buffed out a test piece last week and it looked pretty good. So I cut and buffed out the transom (it had a few drips) and its super flat, no peel and it looks reasonable (still a bit hazy) but not as glassy as it was right off the gun. I Clearly didn't all of the 600/800 grit scratches...

Re: Malahini from MD

Your boat is looking great! Interlux perfection plus has given me glossy finish. I rolled and tipped. The coats are very thin and they don't fill much, in other words, it will follow the contour of the orange peel and GLOSSY orange peel will be the result. The closer you are to dead flat after epoxy...

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

Looking great! The way that the king plank rounds into the covering boards is the same way that I did mine, I think this is the best look.

All my boards were epoxied down, they were about 3/16" thick and they have been fine so far.

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I sprayed some test panels and they turned out well so I decided to spray the boat today. It looks reasonable . Its not the A+ work I was hoping for but its a solid B. Hopefully I can turn it into a A- by cutting and buffing it.The best part is that there are no brush marks or start stop marks. All ...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I sanded down the brush marks and orange peel yesterday with 400 Grit and then washed it down good. Started today with a sunny outlook eager to see a good roll and tip job and now I'm at a loss if I will ever be able to get this paint job looking reasonable; it turned out like a little kid did did i...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I just got off the phone with Dale at Interlux (713-684-1242) and he was very helpful. He said that all I should use for reducer is 5% and the reason it looks like crap is that I am putting way too much paint on and I am not tipping correctly (i.e. orange peel and brush marks). He said I need to do ...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Thanks for the tip Rich I just ordered some. The reviews seem to indicate the are pretty robust. I'll see how they perform vs the regular brushes.
