Thanks, Brian.

The photo doesn't represent the color truly, digital camera and fluorescent lighting.  The green is "greener" than it shows.  System 3 WR-LPU stock green color.  Didn't you use that on your J-22?

Topsides painted tan, masking removed in these pics,  getting ready to modify the used trailer I bought last summer.

Cheers, 

Dave in Homer

I had the other green ...the irish one, more like 'Shrek Green', but can't remember the name right now.  Stephen M., who bought the boat, was going to use it but then decided on a medium-dark blue that looks nice.  I think the lighter green was a bit much, but heck, we've painted every boat that we've built that same color ...sort of a Dixon family tradition!

I like the diamond-pattern steel...

Looking very sharp, Dave!  Can't wait until I'm backing a trailer up to mine.

Thanks, Tioga!  15 months into the build.  Some days it seems like I just started.  Some days it seems like it's taking forever.  I try to stay focused and patient (with mixed results.)

Nice!  Looks like you're almost ready for the water!  Glad it pulled onto the trailer well ...  ;D

Dave,

You boat looks fantastic! I am so impressed with your build it makes me want to quit working on cars and start working on a boat!

Keep it up!

Thanks, Rbob.  Hope you start soon.  Got the boat back from the shop that sprays Speedliner...

Holy moly!  That boat is perfect!  I think it's too classy for having a guy like me in it... sigh!  Sure is looking good and you're sure doing fine work!

Brian

PS: We'll come and see you (and the boat) this summer... really :)   I'm hoping that I can be there for the launch...  ;D

Thanks, Brian.  I'll keep you posted as the date draws near.  Some days the to-do list is so long I just ignore it and try to focus on one thing at a time.  I was a professional construction estimator, scheduler and project manager for many years, but I have had no way of knowing how long this project would take.  That said, I'm pretty sure she'll be in the water within a couple more months...I think.

Cheers,

Dave

Dave,

I love that spray in liner!  That stuff is darn near bullet proof, non-skid, pressure wash it, scrub it with a brush and throw some fish on it! (reverse the order)

We have Line-x down here, usually around 475 for a pick up bed so I can see a $1,000 easily in a boat but there are soo many advantages to use it.

The spray in liner is an excellent choice.  A good friend had his deck done about 5 years ago, cleans easy and looks as good as the day it was done. I have enjoyed not helping him sand and repaint the non skid decks since he had it done.
