:what to paint?
Posted by theo on Nov 3, 2007
I prefer to paint the outside of the hull to define the lines of the boat because plywood often has grain lines going in wild directions; that distracts the eye from the shape. The deck and cockpit, better to varnish, if you paint the deck white you'll be blinded by the brightness on a sunny day, and you can't see the lines of your own boat when you're in the cockpit anyway. Yes, I've had my boats out before the finish coat is on.
