I was either going to love or hate the outcome...and I love it.
There are a few pinholes that I will hit w/ a last coat, but they are TINY and few.
Here's my battleship gray i550:
Below is a slightly different gray boat. This picture was taken after we sailed JUST under the bow in my buddy Greg's 37' Tayana in San Diego.
We had just sailed up the starboard (far) side of the carrier and turned to sail across it's bow when the wind shut off. Thank God that the Tayana is a heavy boat, because it fortunately coasted just long enough to get us around. I have looked up a mast before and it always seems like it is about to scrape the underside of the bridge (or whatever) you are going under. Well, do you see the people out on the catwalks at the bow? They were all saying, "OH MY, they are really close...oh gosh,
look how close he is...is he going to make it?" Even from THEIR perspective we were nearly swappin paint.....cool in NASCAR.....not so cool w/ US Govt property of the military kind.

And a sail aboard my good friend Greg's bristol Tayana 37. Molly enjoyed it!
As we were sailing along I saw a very cool looking sportboat from a distance. Something about it caught my eye. The letters on the sail were CC over an M. A little investigation revealed it was a Cross Current 33' by Maxi yachts.....very sexy! www.crosscurrentmarine.com
Turns out there is a used one for sail for $199,000......WHAT????? I guess I have good taste!
