The classic beauty of the MV Halcyon has been celebrated with a full exterior repaint in single pack AYB products chosen by boat builder and applicators Bayside Shipwright Services.
The existing coatings were in poor condition and necessitated weeks of tedious preparation, primarily focusing on the sanding down of the old paintwork, back to bare in some areas; to provide a sound surface for the new paint system.
Care was taken to minimise damage to the underlying frail coatings by utilising many different sanding methods to suit each layer of coating. Each stage of the application procedure was then inspected making certain all surfaces were bought back to a smooth surface, ensuring the new owners would be happy and with a finish that could be easily maintained in years to come.
Once readied, the exterior was painted with a system of Altex Yacht & Boat Multipurpose Primer to all spot areas followed by a full coat to tie it all in. AYB Marine Surfacer Undercoat and AYB Marine Gloss Enamel were then applied to all above waterline surfaces.
To the hull below water, PrimaShield Sealer, and the well proven and tested AYB No 5 Antifouling.
Amazing, that in this world of technology when spray application is the norm, Bayside Shipwright Services who are traditionalists opted to apply all coatings by brush and roller!
