Thanks guys. I did paint the deck (not inside!) I'm trying to attach more photos but they seem to be too large of a file. I'll keep trying.

Boatnut, Skip and his friend came for a visit last Friday. I've been working on a van with a Jimmy Buffet style theme that they got a kick out of. They wanted me to send some in-process photos to you so that you could forward to them, Ok?

I'll download tomorrow. Maybe I'll post them in this forum when finished. Thanks

Hey Mitcher very impresive, just like the job you have done on my Sunsation. Question, is there a reason you do not paint the rub rail. I have seen it painted on others like Active Thunder and Advantage. Is there to much flex or is it that it would not last after bumping the dock.
Also if you could E-mail me at [email protected] I am looking for a rough price on painting something like what you have done on that 32' on my fathers 36' Apache. When ever you have some time, thanx.:)

Rubrail painting

The reasons you mentioned about not painting the rubrail are right on. Also, most rails are made of a rubber composite which makes it practically impossible to paint, along with the teflon seat ithat mounts to the boat. The first time you bump into something, it is chipped (or gouged) and is then a constant eyesore and just reminds everyone of the age of the boat.

I also don't mask directly up to the railing. Within 1 or 2 years, the constant flexing of the boat will begin to chip away some of the edges of the paint. The solution is to mask at least 1/8" away from the item. The result is a consistently clean paintline that wont be compromised.
