First coat of Rust-oleum topside is on. Very thin coat, will need three at this rate. This really makes those small dent stick out! Guess I will fix those.

Great start.

I vote for leaving the dents, they are character.

Your boat looks similar to my '97 Sylvan, build thread in my signature. Mostly videos.
HOI Crappie Club
Where family and friends come to compete for a little more than bragging rights.


'97 16' Sylvan Back Troller Select
'67 14' Alumacraft
'57 Model FD11 18-hp Johnson Seahorse
'09 Traverse FWD V6 w/ towing package, power sun and moon roof, and ton of other options. The only one I wanted was the towing package. :mrgreen:

Nice job. I liked the video. The wife didnt look to impressed in the video...lol :lol:. Mine checks on me every once in a while. Makes a walk around then goes back in. How did you fill and what did you use on the small holes in the hull? I am almost to that stage.

Put another coat of paint on the boat last night. One more coat and it should be good.

My flotation foam that also aids in deck support will be here on Friday. Should be interesting mixing and pouring that stuff!

Third coat done, turned out okay. Need to wet sand it and polish it up. Saturday I hope to get my foam poured in.
