Jack Tar Topside Paint

Postby AngelaD » Wed Aug 10, 2016 8:35 pm

Hello Everyone,
So I have been repainting the topside of our 31' Jack Tar that my dad built. I have sanded all the wood down to bare wood and applied 3 coats of Cetol Maine and 2 coats of Cetol Gloss, I know there is a lot of debate about how the Cetol looks, but I think it looks great! Sorry I can't figure out how to rotate that picture but I think it comes up right if you click on it

My question is about cleaning the hull above the water line. I am not sure what paint my dad would have used on the hull, but I did find an almost empty can of System Three WR-155 Waterborne Epoxy Primer. I am not interested in painting the hull, but just want to make it look clean, can I use any Fiberglas boat hull cleaner, or do I have to use something special?

Beautiful!!!!!

The primer you described is System Three's filler primer. I think it is compatible to a lot of paints. It appears that you were successful in repainting as the boat look's great.

I actually did not paint any of the hull, I just gave it a good scrub!

THAT'S RIGHT!! There isn't anyone else's opinion that matters!! Besides, your being in B.C. means I can't see it from Tennessee anyway. I think it looks FANTASTIC in the photos. I'm jealous. :D

Now, correct me if I'm wrong... but, as I understand it, the Portland Canal is completely natural - it's not man-made. Am I right? We vacationed in British Columbia when I was a lot younger and still living at home. We passed through that area and I thought that this was a fjord and was only named a "canal."

In either case, you really do have a BEAUTIFUL place to do your boating.
Isn't it amazing!! The person that never has the fortitude to pursue his own dreams, will be the first to try and discourage you from pursuing yours.
