That sure looks great - What brand of paint and system are you using? Coats of primer?

I used the same paint on my old Tahiti. Works very well for a boat.

Imron is a two part product, right? I think our painter mixed it "soft" to reduce the chances of cracking or crazing under the flexing of the hull.

A windage tray attches to the studs on your crank bearings and catches slung oil from the crankshaft. It help to keep the oil from being aerated and lessons reciprocating weight of the crank resulting in " free " horsepower
