Spray paint crap tubes before retubing of course!
Sadly some think thats the way of doing things .....

and many believe it but to us its just like spray painting over rust which is annoying if you want a good job done

That "spray gun" is a fence sprayer, I have one identical. It's just about ok for spraying fences, nothing more!!

What is with the personal rudeness to me friends ? or is this some Fookin joke?
Who would do that to a boat, and than make a vid of it?

Seriously dude, that's not the way to spray a boat, you never stuck back any loose seams or handles, mask any handles or rubbing strake and sprayed it in an open working yard, some of my colleges have been less than kind, but there criticism is valid, you have got to expect a reaction like the one you have receive, I believe that some of my English cousins think they are better than you when it comes to boat care and looking at the vid I'm inclined to agree, I will try to explain without sounding elitist, firstly the guys here are renovating boat at least ten years older than that one and looking at the ribs being produced and used in the USA I would estimate that you guys are a fair way behind us in rib development, secondly, and there are exception, we tend to look after our boats a bit better than the boat that you sprayed, I'm not against spraying boats and have indeed sprayed a couple myself though I can't find any pics, not commonly known the Americas cup protector ribs are sprayed, but I bet I could spot the difference between the job you have done and the above boats I have mentioned

Not to mention the fact that the boat was not covered up apart from the engine there would have been over spray all over the deck, console and seats.

This has to be a wind up

I'm very very glad that I'm not the owner of the blue, no wait, white speckled boat next to the rib in the yard as well.

I'm glad I don't own anything nearby. No precautions whatsoever against over spray. What must the deck have looked like?

And look at the kit he's using! Vibration sprayer, I wouldn't use it to spray the shed!

And the really sad thing - he thinks this is a good job...

Or does he?

Wasn't April 1 was it?

I did have this thought also.

If I had pulled up at my boat and a highly skilled individual ,was spraying his boat next to mine as this, one is afraid of what may occur
