Had a hammer drop off a rack that took a decent sized chunk of veneer off on one side panel of my second duck (pre glass, but post deck attachment; filets were curing)... so I have decided to patch over with wood flour/epoxy and then go with paint on the sides. I am going to go with the graphite/epoxy coating on the bottom panels and then thinking dark blue interlux brightsides on the side up to the deck (still going bright on the deck of course)
My questions are...
1. Will I get enough coverage with 1 quart of interlux paint to do this? I'm having a hard time finding this information other then that I will need arround 3-4 thin coats.
2. Should I do a primer coat first? (after fiberglassing; using the standard kit issued MAS Slow cure-non blush epoxy)
3. I am debating about doing a paint over the deck line much like alot of the painted chesapeakes i've seen - but having a hard time picturing this in my mind for the deck of a duck. My worry is that it will look out of place over the areas where the shear clamps come to an end and sort of twist up to the saple deck. Any yay or nay suggestions?
