It has begun

Going to do piccies of this renovation so here goes!

First the hull so console out and turned over, years of lime scale. Already been jet washed and then onto hydrochloride acid,can't believe how stubborn this stuff is.
Anybody know the best colour gel coat to repair dinks in the spray rails?

Also the saddle bracket on the back is not needed so does anybody want it, it's from a Honda four stroke.

Keith,

Well done for posting pics this time I always enjoy reading renovation threads. Jesus that hydrochloride acid is good stuff, heard about it but never seen the results.

Keep em coming

Alright dude

The acid is good where there is no damage to the hull but where there are scratches in the gel it sticks like you wouldn't beleive.

Nice cod by the way, did you have it for tea?

No apparently not, as long as its diluted 1 part hydrochoric 5 parts water although I'm still trying not to get too much on the toobs.

So, after 2 days of jet washing and painting on hydrochloride acid I'm ready to start repairing the gel coat chips and scratches.

Next step etch out all of the damage with a pencil grinder to give a good key for the new gel.

I would really like to chat with anybody who has experience with gel coat colours to match the orange on the hull.

I had my Beneteau repaired by Kevin Horne in Birdham, he had to match the colour, took him a while to get the gel but the repair was perfect - I'm sure he'd point you in the right direction, see Boatyard Facilities for his number

Try this for colour matching-both are fairly easy to get:-

From Avon

Boats built before 1999 were Tangerine Orange, unfortunately
I do not have the colour number for this.

Boats built after 1999 are international Orange, BS 381C, Colour 592.]
But again we have no RAL number for this. My bold-there isn't a RAL number for this colour-it's from the BS 381c colour chart.

Thanks for the reply mate, but looks like Nos has hit the nail on the head for me.
