    Artie just the pressure pot w/gauges for 30 bucks........it's a 2-1/2 gal. tank and it allows you to drop a 1 gal.
    can of paint in there if you want...............Question, how much paint (Duratec primer) will I need to cover the
    bottom and the hullsides......................Also, the bottom of the boat is gel-coated with only the sides & deck
    painted. With this in mind & to reshoot everything new again ("re-gel" the bottom & "paint" the hullsides & deck)
    would Duratec still be the right primer for both applications??

    Pete, Duratec will be the best primer for both applications , and most likely the cheapest . Hey ole friend , have you taken a straight edge to the bottom of the boat at this point in time , and to tell you the truth ....before i suggest any amounts of Tec , at this time other then 4 gallons for starter's we should most likely talk by phone ...........Pete shoot me your phone numer either by PM or E- Mail ...............Artie

    Caping the rub-rail

    Before I rolled the Magnum back into the shelter I took advantage of the milder weather
    & decided to get to work on eliminating the rub-rail completely. I had already glassed the
    deck to the hull from the inside and now started on making a seemless bond from the
    outside.......after a little prep of sanding & grinding I glassed in a 2" strip of 1708 around
    the whole perimeter........this is just the first step of what will be a more modern looking
    deck to my sport.........some pics of before & then the first step of bonding in a radius.

    Artie thanks for the call & postive comments!.................Also, for suming it up in one word
    called "capping" for which (until we spoke) I had no idea is what I've been attempting to do.

    Pete , http://www.uscomposites.com/cloth.html Pete , i usally go with two layers of 4 oz prior to primer after everything is said and done , filler , ect , ect , when Caping , which is only used to cover all fillers to avoid any or all cracking .

    Artie I picked up a roll of 3" cloth tape, but it's 9oz though..........It wets out realy nice and bends to the radius perfectly.

    Marshall,
    I'm at it almost everyday, but my days start late and end early. I'm in no real hurry since I'm doing all the work myself and still learning
    as I'm going, but I'd say I'm still 2 years away from what I think will be a great & thorough restoration to a 27 sport. Acquired (2) 427 ci
    Dart long blocks last month so power is already determined.......It's great to be retired and make your own schedule!........vacations??
    whenever LOL

    Artie,
    I'll have some pictures when I get done with the fairing....not much now to see. If you remember, the center of the radius is a oak molding
    that was epoxied in to follow the curve of where the rub rail once was.........it's sort of a guide in a sense to crisp line for the radius.
