I have successfully used Rustoleum's marine paint - I think I used the topside paint since the boat is trailered. Home Depot sells it. There is some info on the web about this paint. It really needs a hardener since it takes forever to dry. If you can't find any good info, let me know and I...
Wow! What an undertaking! It looks like you are not afraid to dig into a project!
It would be helpful to know where you are located too, since as someone else suggested a donor hull may not be a bad option. However, I know there is a lot of fun and pride that go into a project like this. I...

I see some races post...

I then drove closer to the...
Okay - I got a mini Harken block to add to my vang setup for more purchased. I want to make sure my understanding of this drawing is correct. Can you please confirm the ends of these two lines tie to the bottom pin or section of the block? Thanks!!!!
One last thought (for those who care lol) I noticed on Youtube that Jon Emmet rigs his entire sail on the ground - vang, outhaul and all. Then lowers the completed rig into the mast step. I may have to try that the next time. The only thing was that in his video there was very little wind...
