Finally finished sanding. Have started finish primer. Applied in console first and going to work my way out. Finished sanding it today. Was talking to fellow boat builder yesterday and asked him about application of textured finish paint. I have been experimenting with adding glass beads to topcoat and then rolling it on with a roller that I have used for nonskid. It actually looks pretty good. Paul said he has been using a urethane product called Raptor with good results. It’s the stuff that they spray in pickup beds. Thought I would give it a try down in the console. Looking for something that will hide some of the small defects in the not too visible places like under gunnels, bilge, ect. Any experience with this product?
