Arctic 22 minor refurb.
So I was swithering as to whether to sell her or give her a bit of tlc. Boat has been used pretty extensively for the last 5 years mainly for diving, it's pretty hard on the aesthetics! I'm gonna keep her and make her a little shinier!
So I have parked her on the drive and have given her the once over, the hull is good and the decking is sound with no soft or spongy areas, new engines a few years ago which are good as are the tubes which were replaced 3/4 years ago. The grab rails for the tubes need the stern sections replacing, I may replace the whole lot as the full rails need to come off and be refixed with brass screws rather than the stainless ones in any case. The hull needs repainted, as does the console and above deck fuel tank, I may also replace the A frame.
I have stripped the old deck paint off which was a nightmare, the old flow coat looks ok ish, first question for the masses: do I redo in flow coat with deck paint on top or just go straight for the deck paint? Thinking of doing it in black and great to match the tubes.
