Hey

It looks like a boat!

What color are you gonna gelcoat it? :P

I'm going to use Alwgrip as the topcoat, but hear they do put gelcoat on epoxy, I'm not going to chance it.

My grandpa said, "There was only two colors to paint a boat white or black, only a damn fool would paint it black!"

Iím not sure what color but I'm leaning on white and maybe some tape accents later but that is all down the road a bit. If I'm going to pull a mold off of this hull I need to keep the paint simple.

Next on the list is to shore up and level the boat in the dolly and pull the rest of the deck halves level then Iíll take a day or two off. Can't remember the last day off. Then I'll start faring the hull and the mold for the crossbeam. I want to set up the strong back for the ama jig, I'm going to build a plug/mold for the amaís and so I can bounce back and forth to break up the sanding when my shoulder gives me grief.

Today I'm going to finish building the new computer, taxes, and file my corp. papers for TMS Composites, what day off, Ha!

Thanks!

Mike

Looks like somebody was at the Walmart paint department again.
I hear the owner is actually color blind .... mean trick!

It would be cool if I had graphical software and could paint it on the computer! I built two computers this weekend and put one in the shop with I-Tunes so I can rock out. Still on the learning curve with Windows7, Office 2007, and typing well maybe too late - Ugh! Well back to the boat when I get up this morning.

The only color I'm going to see in the near future is West 407! I like light blue kind of stealth for the ocean! I was smoking a cigar, having a rum drink, and thinking of a paint scheme.

How much compressor does that airfile require, I've been thinking if getting one but I don't think my compressor will keep up.

If a man is to be obsessed by something.... I suppose a boat is as good as anything... perhaps a bit better than most.

It's an air hog compared to an orbital. I use it at 50 -60 psi on a 5 hp / 80 gal tank and it "runs" my compressor. But in burst you could use it on say a 20 gallon system. I still let my system catch up on my sanders.
If you watch the sales at Harbor Freight it goes from 19.95 to 39.95 - buy the extended warranty for 10 bucks these do not like to be dropped. Iím on my 3rd one I paid full price for my first one broke it , took it back on the extended warranty got it replaced and a twenty dollar bill back because it was on sale.

yeah I've been thinking that the in-line sander would make a bottom job go by pretty easily.

I've only got a 15gal compressor so I really couldn't use it frown

It might work...but be a hassle waiting for the compressor to catch up - then you can just run it depending on how much you care about the compressor, I've burned out a few smaller ones in my days cool
