Two part paint? I always understood that a two part paint is, two parts mixed together to make the paint. Usually the pigment and the drying agent.

I seriously think you need to do some more research with whoever sold you the paint. If you are unsure of what to do, do not do it. It can become a nasty experience, and a real pain in the butt to repair.

No.... its a one part paint.... It's a Pre-Coat Primer for polyurathane paint, then you put the polyurathane paint, no mixing... it supposed to seal and bond and give a little extra strength.

Do you know how many access ports the h16 can structurally take? 2 or 3 per side or just one?

AAAHHHHH!! OK! yep that is what I did to my boat. Painted her with poly. I love the finished product, although the paint I used was a two stage paint.

I did apply a light coat of primer, sanded her down to smooth the coat off. Then applied the polyurethane coat. Like three to four coats actually.

Robi, what kind of hull work did you do before you pianted it?

I have such delamination that i pretty much had had to poke holes on average every 3 inches accross the top and sides of my pontoons, I have one nearly finished and it is turning out to be rock hard.

what kind of paint did you use on your frame and corner pieces? and does it hold up pretty good in the water?

All the paint used is poly-urethane. All the paint has helled up great in the conditions. As far as hull work all I did was put some epoxy on the bottom of the hulls. Rough up the gelcoat, prime and paint.

As far as soft spots, there are NON on this boat. I guess I am just lucky. She is a 83 and extremely dry, hard and stiff.

Oh she is still for sale. :D

Dood those are awesome pics! I can't believe you're selling that thing after all your hard work.
