    That looks nice. I like the color. My wife is after me to paint ours. I was thinking of something similar. I wonder if there's anything you could do about the gloss, besides try another type of paint?

    I have painted several hulls using Rustoleum oil based enamel, about nine dollars a quart at Home Depot, using a nine inch, 1/4 inch pile roller. Pre-sand of course. Mix about a 1/4 cup of quality mineral spirits per quart of paint and roll on, running your wet roller the full length of the hull when you finish a coat, being careful not to leave a build up from the edge of the roller. Three coats leave a good finish. Allow it to cure for a couple of weeks and hand polish. It should have all the gloss and smoothness you want. It is not as tuff as Gelcoat, but will stand up well with a little care and wax.

    Turned the boat over this morning. Thought you might like to see how it's done.
