    Hey Col.
    New conventional wisdom is get a bit of heat into the rubber then a little stretch...
    I may grab some liquid nails, let it set off, then throw it in a bucket of water for a couple of days.

    I hope you put up a video of her sea trials once you get the finishing touch's done and get the motor and electrics sorted..
    Agree.

    On all aspects.

    Mostly the patience and skills.

    But, 100% keen to see the sea trials.

    Re: Haines Hunter V19C rebuild

    Hi all.

    I haven't managed to get any where near as far as I'd have liked in the last couple of months.
    When I left off in mid February, I'd just done the 1st highbuild on the cabin and cockpit.
    But life got in the way, together with crappy weather, an interstate holiday and bloody Covid, and what should have taken a few days has taken near 2 months.

    So, I guide coated the highbuild and sanded it off with 320 grit.

    But I found lots of defects that needed further treatment, so I got the entry, fore cabin and anchor hatches off and prepped...

    to repair structural damage on the 2 cabin hatches.
    While I was at it, I added a bit more glass (Bassalt actually) to the seat buckets to stop them flexing too much:

    I then applied another couple coats of highbuild where needed:

    So, a couple of days to dry properly, then another wet sand with 320 - 400 and it should be right to top coat.

    I'll let you know how that goes...

    And the answer is... Not so well.

    Took a long time to get the old girl sanded, due to the incessant rain.
    Eventually, it looked like all systems go.
    The boat was sanded, blue skies with 20% chance of rain - Go for it!

    By the time the boat was masked, prep washed and the paint was mixed and everything good to go, it was 11.30am.

    Painted the anchor well hatch 1st to dial the gun in - perfect...

    On to the cabin - 1st coat, no complaints. An hour later, 2nd coat - looking good!

    It's now 1.30pm, plenty of time for the paint to dry. Couple of bugs in the paint, but they'll cut out, no worries.
    Cleaned the gun, put everything away, admired my handy work and took a couple of photos. Life is pretty darn good...

    I got up the next morning, and to my absolute horror, I found that the paint on all horizontal surfaces had blushed, which cannot be repaired.

    So I have to sand it all down again and paint , again.

    This time, I'll try to get it into a booth.

    Loaded it onto its trailer in anticipation of the move...

    I'll let you know how attempt 2 works out. All I need now is a decent window of good weather...

    HI

    Read your most recent post and as I know nothing about the technicalities I did a search.

    Is this applicable or only good for metal ?


    Anyhoo enjoying your work and looking forward to the next stage.

    Cheers

    This wet weather would be giving you lots of trouble, I've got a bit to do on my boat snd haven't even bothered to start preparing it for paint, mind you I haven't done it for decades so probably screw it up. Giddy are you hiring a spray booth?

    Chimo, pity they didn't take that ding out in the front of the bonnet, kept looking at it and lost my concentration.

    ha ha yes. There’s another on the left side. Black paint they show everything.

    Hey mate- quick question, did you use Jotun Penguard HB as your HB primer? if so, would love to pick your brain on time between coats ...
