Thanks for the input, yes if I paid somebody to paint it for me, I would also reject the job and demand a redo. I am not a pro painter, I am sure there must be worse paint jobs out there.
Hey a golf ball has dimples in it to make it go faster, maybe dimpled surface on my Hobie has the same effect
To reply to the weight issue, I actually weighed the Interprotect, I put about 750g on each hull, and its 43% solids, so let's round it to 1 pound. An then even less for the topcoat. The hulls used to be blue, and a previous owner did paint it white, but then in a few places the white was so thin blue was showing through. That's why I decided to paint it white for good.
I am still quite new to sailing, yes, an amateur sailor too, so I really doubt I can sail well enough that I would be able to notice the extra 4 pounds of paint. I would have to wait until I get it in the water, hopefully soon, then I can report back if the boat is pulling to one side, and which side?
So on the next hull I sanded it more, before the topcoat, and it looks a lot better. In retrospect I can see I should have sanded it even more, but that is hindsight.
The problem on the first hull was the Crown Royal on Friday night, the resulting hangover the next day and I wanted paint on by the end of the weekend.
So here is the Interprotect re-sanded, with 220 grit.
Then, after topcoat, still wet.
Up close it looks a lot better.
Notably better, I might have to re-sand the first hull and repaint it.
Today the paint seemed thicker, or maybe my internal heating of the hull worked a bit too well, hairdryer inside, so I had to add some thinners to the mix. It certainly helped the flow and gloss. Unfortunately one paint run, I will need to sand out afterwards.
For info on paint consumption, the Endura topcoat I bought a quart, which is one quart of base and one quart hardener, so mixed up it is two quarts, and it is now basically empty. One coat on each hull.
Thanks for the comments, I look forward to reading your inputs.
