Sand back and fourth coat today. A bit of experimenting with foam rollers. The overlaps are still giving me a little trouble in spots.

It's not runs for me Ray. It's just in spots it seems to rough up when I have overlapped as though that particular spot has tacked off enough before the overlap hits it. It's weird because it hasn't done it on every overlap.

You are all probably sick of seeing this thing. Sorry about that. I'm enjoying the work and the learning curve. :D Anyone else got something on the go?

Sixth coat today. Now for some dry off time and sand. Getting the hang of it and working out what I'm doing wrong.

Well it's official. Thunda-Babe and Thunda-Babe 2. Pictures clearly show different trailers and boat rego numbers. Wondering if Thunda-Babe 1 survived.

Thanks Terry Looney.

10th coat on. Time to walk away. The 9th coat crinkled up a bit so had to do a sand back then this coat. There's bugger all wind free weather between now and Wagga so I was lucky this morning.
Hoping to get some water time before then. Just a few more jobs left to do. Nothing major though.

Made a few things shiny and slippery. Should be good for a few mph more!
