    Shiny Boats: Coatings and Paint

    in Sports

    Remember what Nathanael Herreshoff said: "There are only two colors to paint a boat, black or white. And only a fool would paint a boat black."


    We'll start you thinking about everything you need to know about gelcoat. What it is, how it affects a boat's construction, how to take care of it, how to repair it, and how to bring it back to that high-gloss beauty once it has started to fade.


    But gelcoat isn't the only way to have a shiny hull: There's also paint, varnish, and new materials such as sharkskin.


    Our guest is Mike Swietzer (Skagit Valley College). Mike is Department Chair of the college's Marine Maintenance Technology, located at Anacortes, Washington.


    Barbara Jean promises she will tell us how she learned the finer points of watching paint dry at The WoodenBoat School in Brooklin, Maine. (Not for the faint of heart, she says.) And marine surveyor Pat Kearns will tell you what to look for in the shiny stuff before you fall too deepy in love with that previously own boat.
