    Thanks! Notice the hull paint instead of the vinyl wrap? I have to admit, you were right all along, 2 years and that was it for the vinyl, it still looked fine from 15 feet, but up close ... not so much.

    Proper paint job is a much better choice, but with 2 part epoxy paint, very time consuming, but at least i know how to do roll and tip now.

    I also need to do a write up on 2-3 more projects i have done since then

    You remember my comment back then? LoL

    That vinyl won't last long... I wouldn't recommend for anyone else.

    What did you use awlgrip, interlude?

    Yup should do a roll & tip write up,

    So we can check out your top notch work!

          I actually did the whole topic , but for some reason images dissapeared from it, i need to reload them, also need to do a write up on how i bought an industrial sewing machine and built me a new canvas enclosure, (spoiler alert: turned out pretty much the same as pro guys make them , but with the inside reinforcement instead of clear vinyl showing) lol

          I used Interlux perfection for the paint and primekote for the primer. As everybody says, outside temperature and the amount of solvent is the key. With the new stainless portholes it looks like a brand new boat that just came from the boat show now))) but the amount of work to do that right was pretty intense. here is the photo with the new enclosure. I need to do the stern side now
