I did some searching and I think a local paint supply has that stuff. I'm gonna go check it out tomorrow. I'm gonna see if I can get the same metal flake green I have and shoot the underside of the boat and if i can get it down pretty good maybe the top deck. Wife approved my spending so I'm clear.

Well went to the paint store and picked up a polyester primer and a single stage metallic silver paint and a gun kit. Just gotta do it now. All prep work was done this morning

This is just me thinking out loud. Feel free to ignore this.

If you already have the boat on it's head, why not paint it from outer chine to outer chine?

This way, if you decide to paint the rest of the boat later on down the road, your more than half way there..... :thumbup:

Again, don't listen to me, I am fuggin retarded when it comes to this sort of thing. You are probably going about it the right way.

You have done an awesome job thus far...

Because the color I have is close but not that close, and you said that this was a 20 hour fix. I'm already into it about 30 and your trying to add another 15. I think you should just get this damn thing out of my yard. That and I don't think a quart will spray the whole underside. I have already thought about it. A gallon of platinum silver gel and metal flake clear is gonna run near 400.i think I'm just gona have to keep it simple. It's a 40 year old boat with its fair share of nicks and gouges on the top side. Wouldn't be right for the bottom of the boat to be nicer than the top. Lol.

Come to think of it, speed coat would have worked good...

Makes it go faster. It'll add at least a $1000 to the value when he sells it on Ebay. ;D

I think the straight shot all the way up to the bow will look cleaner, or it don't really matter, who's looking at the bottom when your floating

I say go with a version of the phallic missile, it'll take care of your repair in the back and the beaching scars up by the nose.  When will you have the boat flipped like this again?  Make it worth it!
