Finished the hull today

I bought three different gelcoats before I finally got hold of a tangerine pigment witch I mixed with some clear gelcoat and then added wax to make a flowcoat for the final coat. I didnít cover the whole hull just repaired the scratches after sanding with wet and dry.

In the first pic the colours are:

Left = RAL2002 International Orange (newer Searider)
Middle = RAL2004 Pure Orange (a close match to an older Searider)
Right = Llewellyn Ryland 3957 Tangerine Orange (This was an exact match to my 1990 hull)

http://www.llewellyn-ryland.co.uk/standardrange.html

There is a slight blue staining on the hull witch would have come off with a lot of sanding but I will put up with these rather than have thinner gelcoat.

Iím glad thatís over!

Thanks Olly, I couldn’t have done it without the help and advice from Ribnet members. I’m amazed that I got away without painting it.

Today I built up layers of gelcoat in the transome holes (I had already made some wooden plugs out of mahogany and glued them in when I first got the rib to keep the transome nice and dry)

I then stripped all the webbing straps off of the deck and washed them in a bucket of hot water and vanish. While they were soaking I polished the deck with some G6 and an electric polisher with a foam buffing pad.
