Webbing

Post by krazymatt »

I want to redo the webbing on the inside of my boat. It's a 12' JB. How much does it usually take to do 1 boat. I know I need to get the webbing solution and mix it with lacquer paint, I'd like to lay it down pretty thick/cover a lot. What do I need to do to prep my hull before I spray it?

When I had to re-apply mine I wanted to apply a heavy amount as well. I used about 2-2.5 quarts of the stuff...

When using webbing solution mixed with gelcoat and shooting with a gelcoat gun , all you need is about 1/3 of a quart cup to apply a pretty heavy coat of webbing on a 12" to 13" hull.

Just go to Harbor freight and buy a cheap gun used to spray automotive paint. You can get a pretty purple one for less than $40.00. I would recommend a gravity feed one

X2 that is the gun I used, adjust gun and air pressure, try on paper the more distance between gun and boat the heavier it will spray

ok I know this is a old. but i just tried some test shoots and my webbing is coming out real this and very light to where it is floating all over. i mixed to what the bottle said which is 2 parts oaint i part solution. thats way off what you are saying to mix at. Im sure thats where my issue is but just wanted some opinions.
