While I still had good access by reaching over plank #2, I decided to finish the cockpit sole. I wrapped the paint up the side walls of the sole 2″ all the way around the boat for a bathtub look. I plan to varnish above the paint line later in the build.I then taped off the sections of the floor where I wanted to use non-skid. The product many recommended was Kiwigrip. One quart was sufficient for all areas.The process is actually very simple.
- tape off the areas to be painted, rounding all corners with a razor blade
- sand the area to be painted for good adhesion
- trowel on Kiwigrip
- roll with provided roller
- remove tape will paint is still wet
It was a lot of fun to see things take shape as I pulled the tape off. This meets the ‘ham’n’egger’ standard. I very happy with these results.
