Re: rudder stick handle

Re: gel coat webbing

either one just gotta figure out the mix..just enough paint to color it if it's clear solution..I tried paint on this one & couldn't get it to spray like I wanted..not sure if weather was a factor or not so I just mixed some gel coat and no problem..I know Wade at hamant told me all they use is webb...

Re: gel coat webbing

I've heard & read you can use any paint to color it with or just buy colored gel coat which is what I ended up doing..Wade at hamant told me he just uses the webbing solution & paint to do his hulls..good luck..it was an experience for sure but not hard once ya figure out your air pressure,pattern etc
