If you want the ultimate finish then get it professionally finished in Awlgrip

Photo below is a console I refinished with Perfection:

Was a good console. Made by Ocean RIBs. Boat was a Redbay. I stuck it in there with plans for romantic weekends away. For some odd reason my girlfriend was less keen so we sold it.

I tried to track down the mould but no luck. Don’t think Windsor Brothers (who built Ocean) are still in business.

Tim and Nugent, both examples look great! Is it just a case of sanding the current coat to help it apply then brushing or rolling on? Does it go smooth without worrying about brush marks etc?

Ps Tim that does look like a great console! Not sure it would fit onto my 6.3m Ocean Pro (1.2m inside beam at front of console)

Anyone recoated a console in different colour?

Decent prep is the key. In short yes you want to sand it. That console was done by rolling it on and then “tipping” it with a very expensive paint brush. (search on YouTube for the technique). You’re then left with a close to perfect smooth and imperfection free finish. Spraying gets you a slightly better result but harder to do in a DIY environment. I think it had about 8 coats, with a wet and dry sand between each one.

Just occurred to me that Nugent did the windscreen in the photo so it was a bit of a joint effort!

Looks great Tim , it's amazing what you can achieve with a roller and some polishing afterwards
