I just looked back at the order I placed on Amazon for the Butyl tape. This was the stuff I used:

Dicor BT-1834-1 1/8" x 3/4" x 30' Butyl Seal Tape

And this is the paint I used:
Watch out for the white, it comes in gloss and semi-gloss. That is expierience speaking, I had to return one becasue mix and match isn't a good idea!
I also found this at my local big box building supply store.

I used the Rustoleum Topside and primer on my Buccaneer a year ago and it has help up well.

Thanks for the clarification Happy Camper. LOL, tells you how much I know, I thought rustoleum only sold rust paint. I was thinking to myself that's odd, I did not know you could use rust paint on fiberglass. I think I better stick to my desk job. Thanks for the links for paint and Butyl tape.

Thanks Bob, glad to see your paint is holding up well. Good to know as there is a big difference in price between rustoleum and Interlux paint. Only problem is buying rustoleum on Amazon Canada the shipping is expensive. I have a supplier for Interlux paint and the price is almost the same when you consider the shipping. I will try to find a local supplier for rustoleum.

I painted the interior in 2005 with ordinary plastic enamel paint. I think it was the Sico anti rust kind.

I is still holding perfectly and looks as good as ever. \:\)







There was no special pre-treatment other than just wash the surface.

plastic enamel paint, interesting. I really like what you did with your storage compartments. Did you overlay wood and glue to front of compartments. I really like the drape covers with buttons. What type of fabric is that?

Sanded and cleaned the hull and then filled all deep gouges using Interlux watertite. I have to say compared to working with epoxy Interlux filler is great if you want a peanut butter consistency.

Glad I am almost done epoxy work, boat and shelter is full of garbage and tools. It's amazing how cluttered everything gets when working. Once all epoxy is sanded it is time to clean shelter and boat and do a good power wash of entire boat. Not sure if I will be able to paint until the spring as it is starting to get cool. I might do the laze and storage compartments so I can see how my repaired bulk head looks.

Head Pump out hole has been epoxied. I need to roll on some epoxy as there is a bit of a gap between epoxy and fiberglass. I think I should have beveled the fiberglass edges a bit more for a better finish.

Repair almost finished for entrance into cabin. I plan on sanding all the wooden parts of the boat during the winter so they are ready for the spring.

Talking about wood finishes, my rubrails are totally destroyed. I will be changing the look of my Piper but I think I will go with the TACO rubrail kit.

Any thought on this?
