    Apologies if this has allready been covered. How am I going to paint the whole deck and cabin in one shot while maintaining a wet edge? Or do people not do it like that?
    I plan on starting at the bow and working back...how long will the edge stay wet? I will be using interlux epoxy primekote

    Thanks for any help

    The holes are where the interior cabin beams bolt through from the outside. I have ground out a circular area and I'm going to wet out with epoxy then cut a patch of fiberglass cloth, lay it in then fill with thickened epoxy then sand fair.
