    RE: Dumas 36

    Top of the deck is masked and primed. Once the primer dries I will spot putty any dings, reprime those areas and then shoot the blue.

    RE: Dumas 36

    Masking has been removed to give you an idea of what it's going to look like. I haven't put the clear urethane on the top and hull yet

    RE: Dumas 36

    Fred,

    That is looking Gorgeous!

    The blue is really outstanding.  I seem to notice that the color goes 'over the edge' and down the side just a bit.  In other words, the  union of the deck and the hull is not the dividing line/stopping point for the trim.  It looks GOOD and I would not have thought of doing it that way (unless the plans told me to do so).

    I also note you are using Krylon paint, one I tend to use though not exclusively.

    Bob

    RE: Dumas 36

    Hi Bob,
    Thanks for the kind words. I just got through spraying 3 to 4 light coats on it, starting to look real nice. I have been wet sanding between dried coats and it's getting real smooth. The blue is actually darker than it shows up in the pictures. I think the flash is washing it out. Anyway we are getting to the end of this build. If anyone is interested in buying this shoot me an email Warbirds1@cox.net.
    Thanks,
    Fred

    Hi Fred,
    The boat looks awesome! I’m wondering, are you going to finish up the seating and the dashboard/steering wheel?
    Try taking pictures of the boat without the flash. (even though the flash looks awesome against the wood finish) The true colors will show upin pictures.

    RE: Dumas 36

    OK, I put on a whole bunch of clear. Got a little too much on the deck trim got some runs. OH well, more sanding. LOL Anyway you get to see the backs of the seats also. I will sand the runs and light recoat as well as painting the seats. Stay tuned.
    Thanks, and Merry Christmas to all

    RE: Dumas 36

    Your boat is looking great. I have just started building my first boat kit and you have no idea how thankful I am that you took the time to document your build. As a new builder I have a lot of questions and would appreciate your help. I am building the Dumas Racing Runabout. I am unsure what product you are using as a final finish. If I understand correctly you Glassed, Urethaned and then cleared. What clear did you use. I am nowhere near this stage but I like to have my ducks in a row. I just started this build a few days ago.

    The other question that I have is this. My kit does not have a wood planked bottem. It is plastic (expanded pvc) that will get painted. I read ahead in the instructions and it stated that the bottom does not need to be glassed. I plan on making it RC and I am compelled to glass the bottem for better sealing and finish. What are your thoughts on glassing over the plastic bottom?
    It is the wise man that reads the instructions and the fool that does not.

    RE: Dumas 36

    Hi Airhog,
    Thanks for following the build and glad it will be a help for you. The Urethane I'm using is a clear gloss spray made by Minwax. Just shake and spray. I get it at Home Depot. If you mess up, just wet sand and respray after it's dry. If you have a plastic or fiberglass hull you don't have to glass it. Just sand with 400 wet or dry prime and paint. I use Krylon spray. It has a nice spray pattern and dries in about 12 mins. Works great and many colors.
    Hope this helps.
    Thanks,
    Fred

    I'd buy it but You'll have to take off $100 for the steering wheel being on the wrong side of the boat.

    Thanks for the comments Wayne. Don't be too hard on Amish Warlord , He didn't realize He was looking at the pictures using a mirror. LOL This was built in the USA that's why the wheel is on the left. If you want it opposite you have to get one built in England. Hope this helps. LOL
    Thanks,
    Fred
