    Ha....from my experience I have yet to find one do it all roller cover. I have been using three different mini rollers to lay down the primer coatings.



    The Mohair Rollers from Redtree are what I would say are the closest to a do all roller. They hold a good amount of material and lay down a fairly smooth coating with out much stipple.
    Best for initial primer coat to cover and subsequent coats to build up coating surface.





    Redtree also makes a Foam Roller that works really well. This roller does not hold as much material compared to the mohair but it leaves an almost perfectly flat finish.

    Best use for smaller jobs and certainly what to use for you final coating.



    The third roller cover is the Whizzflock mini roller. It's another 4" roller that works pretty well.

    This roller holds material well and lays out a decent coating while leaving very little stipple behind. This roller excels in coating complex areas that are hard to reach...the covered end works great for inside corners.



    I should also mention that the Whizzflock rollers will start to break down after about 20 minutes of use...they are not 100% solvent resistant.


    Let me know if I "covered" everything

    • Great pictures and its going to be rock solid when you are finished. Ditto the comment on raising the deck if you can. There were days when I dropped a live google eye out of the live well and it was swimming around the deck. I never fixed the transom on my 19 even though it was wet inside. Never showed any signs of weakness - despite heavy offshore use.

      Keep us up to date.

        Thanks for commenting AfterShock..

        I hear you about running this hull with wet feet...the wide open factory transom design does a great job of getting a lot of unwanted water off the deck in a hurry, however it would also let water in during certain sea conditions. Heck I can remember backing down the boat ramp a little to fast and getting out to see the deck flooded before the boat was even off the trailer

        This is one of the reasons I modified the transom when it was time to recore. I'm hoping the enclosed transom with the small splashwell will now keep the water out of the boat.

        Went from this....



        To this...





        I also raised the deck drainage about an 1 1/4" or so....the original single scupper that was in the center transom well was abandoned and I installed two larger diameter deck drains at deck level.

        This should also help with keeping water off the deck when two or three people are standing in the stern.



        Thanks again for your input.

        • Man, as usual exceptional work. This is one of the top of the line craftsmanship boats on the site. But you are killing me when I still don’t get to see it splash yet lol. Keep up the great work Eric, glad to see she got a nice new sled to ride one, one she won’t roll off!

            Hey Tim...thanks for the complement pal.

            No telling when this one hits the water...life happens, you know the deal.

            I will be finishing up a couple things on the boat this weekend... I will capture some images and post the recent progress.

            • Hey Gang.... update of recent progress.

              Finished priming the cap, liner walls and casting/main deck of the boat. I also primed the center console, as well as the forward and aft storage hatch covers and frames. Pictures and process listed below.

              I used two different AwlGrip primers ....545 Epoxy Primer (white base) and AwlQuik Epoxy Primer (off white base)

              The application process was pretty straightforward.... First all the surfaces were washed with mild soap/water and towel dried. Next everything is wiped cleaned with AwlGrip surface cleaner. Second the primers were applied using high density foam rollers. Finally the primer was sanded down with 220 grit sandpaper.

              I applied two coats of the 545 primer following recoat time recommendations. After the first two coats cured a light sanding and surface cleaning was done.

              Next I applied two coats of the AwlQuik primer following the recoat time recommendations. Again, after the two coats cured I sanded all surfaces down with 220 grit sandpaper. Finally to finish, all surfaces were wiped down with cleaner and the boat was washed with mild soap and water.

              Here's two coats of 545 epoxy primer before sanding. The 545 is very thin and rolls out fairly flat.




              The AwlQuik primer is a quick drying primer/sufacer. It provides a medium build that is easily sanded.


              Pictured here is two coats of the AwlQuik.



              Here is the surface sanded down with 220 grit sandpaper.



              Here's the boat after the priming process....It's nice to see it all one color, even if it's only in primer 😄
















              More to follow.....as always your suggestions, comments and recommendations are welcomed.

              thanks...Eric

              • Looks great Eric, is it better to roll the primer rather than spray it? Thanks

                  Thx Cee...you can roll or spray this primer. I opted to roll the coatings on and skip the prep work involved for overspray when using a spray gun.

                  Most pro's will spray....I'm a novice at best and rolling works "better" for me.

                  That said....at the end of the day it's only a primer coat and will need to be sanded prior to top coat anyway.

                    Thanks for checking in Mike....

                    I can get pretty reckless with the spray gun 😬....... so when the painter is ready I will let a pro put the finishing touches on this one.

                    • Looking good Eric. It's too late now, but for future readers, and in total retrospect, I'd rather see the deck drains at the outside corners. Think about a boat when it takes on water, many times it leans to one side or the other, so with your scuppers more centerline it would be harder for water to exit the boat in a bad situation. Of course the chance of it happening is very slim, but just a keyboard captain observation. Keep up the excellent work.

                        Hi Steve....appreciate your thoughts and comments!

                        You have an interesting perspective about scupper placement and removing water from the deck... I didn't think about it in that way.

                        Funny thing is I was thinking more about preventing water from entering the boat through the scuppers rather than removing water from the deck....let me explain.

                        Of course I have a couple images to help depict my reasoning...

                        I was thinking if and when the boat would list to one side the outer scupper placement would allow water in much sooner than a more centerline scupper placement. The Mako 19 has a stable 8ft beam but when we are fishing/crabbing and a call for the net goes out...sure enough my crew would be rushing to one side of the boat to see what's about to get landed.


                        In the picture below the red line represents the waterline and the blue circles represent outside scuppers.




                        And here is the boat listing portside....outside scupper below waterline, more centerline scupper at waterline.



                        I should also mention that my scupper placement plan includes adding a regulator style scupper cover( if needed) that would cover both the larger deck drain and the smaller splashwell drain that are next to each other.

                        Anyway...that's how I planned it.....time will tell how it works out.

                        Thanks again for your insight!

                        • Hey all... quik update

                          Reinstalled the center console in the boat. Also was able to fasten the console forward seat door.















                          I think the console mods turned out pretty good...still have to add a handle to the seat as well as some cushions down the road.


                          More to come.....as always your suggestions, comments and recommendations are welcomed.

                          thanks...Eric

                        • This is spectacular Eric. An absolute dream build here, I hope you pass it down through your family for generations to come (and NONE of them sell it!!!)

                          If I ever get my 19 fully restored, I want it done just like this, truly fantastic.

                          I can't recall, but what engine are you throwing on this? That decision would give me so much anxiety! Going to put any other doo-dads on it too, trim tabs?

                          • Eric, Looking great. I like how its fastened down from the inside rather than the outside, gives a nice cleaner look. Still following to see it splash.
