Can't wait to get the bottom paint on. One of the previous owners painted the antifoul paint up about 5"-6" higher than necesary. I considered sanding off the extra paint and adding a boot stripe. However, I think I'll wait to do that at the next haulout. In the interim it makes my life a little easier since the majority of my hull extension will recive bottom paint and not requiring extra sanding and buffing. The grey area between the new blue bottom paint and the white gelcoat is a epoxy barrier coat.
Close up shows the nice radius on the side of the extension and the seamless transition from old to new. Lots more sanding to go but it's really starting to take shape. Next steps include applying non skid to the deck area to match that used on the steps. I plan to leave a 3/4" polished edge at the perimeter. The non skid additive is Polymeric and goes into suspension in the gelcoat so it may be brushed, rolled or sprayed. The first layer of gelcoat will include the LBI 40/60 course compound and then an additional layer of gelcoat will lock in the compound and reduce the abrasiveness to bare feet.
