    New Paint w/Power Sprayer?

    Interlux says the Pre-Kote can be applied with an airless sprayer but I'm thinking of going with an HVLP. You don't learn if you don't try. Or "who dares, wins" as they say.

    New Paint w/Power Sprayer?

    Will do. I think you're right about needing an HVLP. I've found several (reasonably) affordable ones. I wonder if anyone has a recommendation on sprayer models. It looks like with a good gun, I could possible lay down both primer and topcoat. And, yes, copy that on respirator. Thanks, Mr. Kent.

    First post; need help picking out car to tow Sunfish

    Welcome Gunnar, I regularly use a Honda Accord to tow my Sunfish and have no problem with it. The Sunfish is a light boat (around 130 lbs) so that's not going to be an issue with any car. The trailer could be, though I doubt it. I've towed Sunfish on small aluminum trailers with no trouble and...

    Purposely sailing a sunfish in a thunderstorm...

    And you may be ok with a "thunderbolt," but a lightning bolt; that's another matter ;).

    Purposely sailing a sunfish in a thunderstorm...

    It would just be a puff of smoke and that's all. "That's all" as in you'd be a goner. But I've been tempting by the same myself whilst watching these late afternoon storms down here on the Gulf Coast.
