Welcome to ribnet

Have a read of this:-

If you're painting the whole boat it won't make a lot of odds if you get it slightly out as it'll be unnnoticeable.

If you're removing all the paint from it, I'd use flowcoat rather than painting it.

Gelcoat,the wax additive to make it into flowcoat and tangerine pigment are available on Ebay.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
