A Little Paint Looks Good

2016-06-19 12.13.50 (Medium)I started painting Fish Taco’s hull.  The paint is Systems Three WR-LPU water-based polyurethane.  The color is Whitby White which is a cream/ivory color.  The very nice thing about this paint is that it can be re-coated in 2 hours depending on the weather/temperature and up to 24 hours without sanding between coats.  It is a little tricky to put on and by the third coat I had improved the process.  Being water-based cleanup is easy as long as you don’t wait too long.  I settled on using a 4 inch wienie roller used for door and cabinets.  I then tipped out the bubbles and streaks using a 3 inch foam brush. While the final paint job is not perfect, there are dust, streaks and runs in the paint, I am happy overall all.  I decided not to put the blue stripe on now so I will have to sand before I do.
