I am starting to have second thoughts about painting wood white. I might just use a stain instead. What to do....What to do.....Not sure how stained wood on deck will look like now that rub rails will be rubber.

Any opinions?

Another question. In between coats of Brightside paint should I dry sand or wet sand with 320 grit paper? There does not seem to be a definite answer when searching the internet.

We're lucky in that our Sandpiper's teak was mostly intact, especially the rub-rails (no splits!). I did replace the companionway trim and the hatch slide with new teak pieces I made.

We had some Cetol 'natural' deck finish left over from our reno, so I have been using that. Better protection than just oil; less fussy than spar varnish. In just two coats, it imparts a low-lustre dark-honey finish to lightly-sanded teak, and lasts two to three seasons. I'm quite pleased with it, and I think it's worth the effort.

Had a bit of rain on Friday so was unable to do any painting. More rain in one day of June than all of June in 2016. If it would have been any worst I could have launched my Piper.

Second coat of primer done. Now that priming is completed will sand with 320 grit sandpaper and clean with Interlux 333 brushing liquid. Now comes the good part, first coat of dark blue Bright Side. Never brushed/ tipped before. For anyone that has done should I add some Interlux 333 to thin the paint a bit?

Needed some new nylon track ends. Why try to buy new ones when you can 3D print them. Thanks to my buddy who spent the time measuring all the dimensions and drawing it out. Little rub down with acetone to smooth them out and will be good to go.

Printing some end pieces for rail and washers that go under rail. These 3D printers are amazing.

Mark could you send me the file for thoses parts ? I also need them and I have a 3D printer so it would save me the time to design the part...

Pretty darn cool.

Despite the ultimate geek cred of 3D printing, I decided my life was too short to get into it. I did splurge $200 for a smallish laser engraver kit, so that I could still play with stepper motors and G-code. Not much application for the Sandpiper though, except for engraved labels on everything.

Chris. Only changes I need to make is the base thickness is 1mm too thick. Also both holes need to be moved back about 1mm. I will get the files changed and get a copy next time I see my friend.
