New Paint & Boat Graphics for a 30-Year-Old Tartan Ten
Eriesistible Gets a Makeover Fill and Sand, Fill and Sand... ...that's the way it goes in the search for a "perfect" surface. An unfair surface will ruin even the best paint work but a fair one can elevate even a mediocre paint job.The reflections in the photos below show that we achieved both. This Tartan Ten spent its first 30 years as an all white boat, blending in with all the other all-white boats on the water. Now, she stands out with her black-on-black graphics and wood-overlaid transom.
And a few more fair hulls...
A Mahogany Overlay on a Fiberglass Transom
Transforming the Look of a Fiberglass Hull Eriesistible's New Look is Completed In my opinion a varnished wood overlay can vastly improve the appearance of almost any fiberglass boat. We start by fairing the glass transom, then bond a wood overlay to it (about 3/16" thick), followed by the clear finish of choice. We have transformed the appearance of at least a half dozen sail and powerboats this way to great effect.

Whatever the reason, hand lettering somehow just looks right.
