Tips and Tricks for Bottom Painting

If you haven’t painted your boat’s bottom yet – this might be your big weekend to get it done. We thought this video from sage shipwright, Louis Sauzedde, might help get you started and finished with little or no drama. Lou’s tips are helpful for proper mixing and preparation of not only the surface, but of the can and the little details.
