Vail, sure makes for a lighter skin than the 1.5 mat. I'm going to have to get some for my next builds.

Not that John doesn't have some gel coat experience under his belt but that doesn't look like him in the pics.
I forgot who you said there gel coat king was. By the way Larry, my like to post count ratio is killing yours.

Just brought it up from the Lam shop this AM. We built a mold for the step now so it can be built out of fiberglass with the boat.

That is a beautiful gel scheme, super classy, I dig it. Apologies if this is a dumb question, but how does that pepto bismol looking gel turn into that dark awesome red? what was sprayed on the seatback photo.

It's all smoke and mirrors.:D



Seriously,red gel can have a slight translucent tendency.
After the red is shot their guy mixed a little white in what was left and backed up all that red with pink.Its an extra step to assure quality.

If you backed it up in black right away it would have a dark cherry look, and not red red red. That center pod is like the ones on the Highly copied Silhouette's.

Ya by the way when you all post those really pics I have no idea what the boat colors will be.
