Re: Paint or gel coat inside glass hull?

Re: Paint or gel coat inside glass hull?

Can you thin gel coat to spray with a paint spray gun?

If you want a taxture use a roller for texturing paint. When i made a deck for an old boat it was still slipery with a texture on when wet.

Re: Boat would not start in the cold.

Aircraft primer kit is small lines from the primer assy that go directly to each cylinder so that when you unlock the hand pump and pump it the gas goes directly into the cylinder. But I agree with GMAC, if that carb is right it should start. I had a similar problem that your having and Greg showed...

Boat would not start in the cold.

This sucked Saturday morning a Florence. The plan was turkey hunt then do some fishing and riding. Carb was just rebuilt not but a few mouths and uses. VO540 So I have a question why does the accelerator pump cause this problem? Boat starts fin once the weather warms up. Lake Florence is really low.

They are all almost made by the same company. if you try them look thru them all by brand you will find some are really clear for us old eye and some are not. High price is just really a rip off.
