Title: Toe in the water , wanting someone to paint one of my boats for me
Post by: Yogibear on April 26, 2013, 11:55:28 pm
Hopefully this is ok to post in this area of the forum. Ive decided that my skills dont extend as far as painting goes so im wondering if there is anyone out there who would be able to do some painting for me to a good standard.

The boat is a MINI40 Trimaran that I bought from Germany aprox 7 years ago. The paint job was looking a bit tired so I attempted to repaint it my self but mucked it up a bit. 

Essentially it will need rubbing down, some areas filled, Primered and painted. It is quite a big boat because it has three hulls , all 1.2m long and cross beams as well.

I bought myself an airbush and was trying to do it myself but I need a lot more practice and probably several years experiance before im anything like happy with the finish.

Its really a bit of a toe in the water to find out what it will cost me and what finish can be achieved.

Sorry , my location is Carlisle in Cumbria so miles from anyone. I'll have to transport to myself I think, it origionally came in a crate the size of a coffin so would be far easier for me to just drive somewhere with it rather than tray and pack/send a parcel that size.

Going to try and work my way through the PM's now, thanks for the reply.
