Bottom painting another boat

Recommended Posts

I’ll probably regret taking this on but it’ll be good for a few $$ towards my boating season.

 

This is my old Rinker that I sold to my good buddy. He moors next to me and is also tired of scrubbing scuzz off the bottom in the fall. Soo, it’ll get the same treatment as mine which seems to be working well. A few coats of Interlux Interprotect 200e, then a few more coats of VC17.

 

Getting it off the trailer wasn’t nearly as dicey as mine was. The beam with the slings worked well, just had to saw down the jack stands a bit.

That will be a fun project. Did that for extra cash in high school.

I did my boat a few years ago. It was a learning experience but satisfying when it was done.

I’m probably not charging him enough to do this but it should be a lot less work than mine was.

It’s getting crowded in here

Holy cow your boat is no joke. The "project" boat looks like a mid 20s length and your boat makes it look very small.

You are correct. The project boat is a Rinker 230 Festiva. Was pretty simple to pull off the trailer. 

 

Loose Cruise is a Regal Commodore 277XL, it’s 31’ OAL pulpit to swim deck, the hull is 28’. Was pretty spooky taking it off and on the trailer. I never want to do that again.

That other boat is going to be cake for you to do compared to your boat.

Got a good jump on it today. Scrubbed the bottom with scotchbrite and fiberglass surface prep/wax remover and washed it. Sanded with 80g, vacuumed, wiped with solvent. Even got the first coat of barrier paint on. It’ll get the second coat tomorrow then on to the anti foul. Probably gonna feel this later.

Nice work! I did this to the stalker the boat that Dave Conrad bought. A lot of work but worth the effort. 

Your neighbor will be happy and thank you for the reminder of why I will NOT sell my 02 to a friend or neighbor! 

I do not want to be the maintenance guy!!!!!!!!!:hit:

I hear ya there, I cringe at the though of selling something to someone I know. I’ve taught him to do all his own motor and drive maintenance and let him do it in the shop. He’s not setup to do this stuff but I’m certainly not doing it for free.

Looks great!!! We used office chairs really low with the back rests leaned back. It really made the bottom process alot easier.
You're like a pro now.

Yeah, this is all getting done from a creeper, I like that office chair plan but it’s too much work to get it up higher.
