Stitch and Glue 101 - Paint

Top Coat and Non-Skid:

The final painting is straight forward. It can be done by brushing or spraying.
You can apply non-skid on the sole and foredeck: use masking tape to define a non-skid area and apply paint mixed with non-skid powder.

Non skid is some type of sand mixed paint. You can adjust the roughness by varying the amount of non skid additive.



A nice touch is to use a slightly darker paint for the non skid and cut round corners.

Boot Stripe:


A boot stripe is easy to paint.


On a level floor, block your boat level and using a stick, mark the boot stripe every 10 inches.


Join the marks with masking tape.


Add tape along the other edge and paint.


The final touch is to spray a few coats of Clear Coat over the whole job.
For a perfect gloss, sand between coats.
