    WiTHiN freshly paintedWell – here she is all freshly painted. FINALLY. Ken and I hauled the boat to U-wrench in Calgary where we rented their paint booth for a few hours. Typical of the kind of good luck that seems to follow this project around, when Ken was in the auto body supply shop asking questions about paint, he met Chuck from Hoodlum Customs who was also buying supplies. When Chuck learned about PedalTheOcean, he offered to shoot the paint for us!

    Chuck did a great job, but I can’t decide if I actually like the paint color or not. It’s not what Ken and I had specified and I think the paint shop we purchased the paint from didn’t provide exactly what we had asked for. Inside under florescent lights it looks sort of copper – like a penny. Outside in the sun, it looks more orange. It’s supposed to have pearl in it, and you can see some pearl in the paint can, but I don’t see any pearl on the boat at all.

    I’m hoping once we add decals and stickers and everthing else it will look better.

    We have two weeks to finish – the home stretch!!!!!
