Thanks for the encouraging words guys. I was building another blog but got locked out before I finished. This is my 4th try! Blog sites keep geting taken over or merging and then disappearing. I think I will keep a copy on my computer this time so I don't have to re-create the next one from scratch. It's either that or pay for a domain.

Dora was my entry in the $100 boat challenge.

My ferro-cement proa under construction. If you look to the bottom right you can see the ama plug with one layer of mesh. I have begun decking with Styrofoam which will be covered with ferro laminate then I can begin working on all the wooden bits

Hello,
I bought this aluminum runabout several years ago, but soon realized that it wasn't quite the right set up for west coast salmon fishing. So I thought that I would take out all the salmon/cat piss smelling carpet and just paint all the existing plywood. I figured, what? a couple months work, no problem. Well, three years, and a bunch of bright ideas later, its finally ready for the topcoat.
I'm using Interlux Perfection. My plan was to roll and tip, but I'm wondering what my best plan would be. Do I work my way section by section, brushing into the corners, or do I work bow to stern, gunnel to gunnel a foot or two at a time to try and maintain a wet edge, which could be difficult by myself.
I also thought of having it sprayed, but I have read some feel that perfection doesn't spray that well and in fact looks better roll and tipped. I would like to finish it myself, but after all this time and work that I have put into it, I want the best finish possible even if it means paying someone else to spray it. What do you guys think?
Oh, and to let me know if you have any questions about the project, I,ll be happy to answer them.

Thanks
