It's at a fiberglass shop now, they have done all the work and will start the metal flake gel coat as soon as I tell them what I want. He has entered boats in numerous shows and plans on using 7 lbs of flake and putting nine coats of clear. What do you guys think of going black to where the water line starts, then white to where it ends. Start the red flake at top of water line to the rub rail. Leave the cap white with the bow being red flake? Thoughts and help are appreciated. Automotive paint, bondo and holes in the gel is the reason I am going through this process.

I guess when I said paint that scared everyone. I am gel coating the boat and looking for design ideas. The cost of using flake is around 100 per pound for good flake. Labor is about the same but requires double the amount of clear on top.

Sounds like it will look great to me. Flake on the bow is really going to be unique.

If I may ask, how much is it costing to re-do the gelcoat? I'd like to do that too, but the guy here who does it wants to see the boat for a quote (understandable) and it's in storage already.

Mine had a lot of damage to the fiberglass and someone had put the rub rail on with steel rivets so there were some extra costs. Mine was 3700. If it it is a clean boat with no damage it would be around 2300

Whew! I feel a lot better. In my mind, this has gone from a disaster-in-the-making to an exciting design project. I've seen many, many great restoration projects posted here over the years but I don't think I've seen one that entailed an entire re-gelcoat. Nice.

I just left the shop! White bottom to where the boat sits in the water. Red flake from there to the rub rail. It will have a 1/2 inch white pin just under the rub rail and just over the water line. The bow will be red flake with the same1/2 inch pin around it. Black carpet and new seats from a guy around here that says he can duplicate vipers work and detail. This is being done by A Touch Of Glass in Mt holly NC. He will be taking it to a show in Feb. I will post pics as progress is made.

There's a PS190 of the same hull/deck as yours I've seen on Lake Austin redone with Red Flake over a white hull (mimicking the factory gel scheme) and it looks fantastic.

Can't wait to see pics of yours.
