Ahhhh, great tip. I will try the second roller trick with my fourth and final coat on Friday. I have 3 coats on now and I am sure it looks fine to most people. But as a fellow builder you know how that goes ;-) When I examine the paint from certain angles I can still see a slight overlap in color across my 2 foot sections from the foam brush.

I was debating either thinning the paint some for the final coat or using a wider foam brush to make the tipping go faster on the hull as I don't seem to have this problem on the deck edge where I can more quickly move from section to section. The second foam roller sounds better to me though rather than changing things up and thining the paint for the final coat.

As for pics, unfortunately I am in the dark ages and don't own a digital camera yet. You will have to wait until a christen the boat. Right now I am shooting for a launch date of July 3rd. Wish me luck!
