The paint plan for the new Toto is to make it mostly grey with a big shark mouth painted on the front. I picked up a quart of Rust-Oleum gloss grey this morning and got the first coat on after lunch. I’m really happy with this way this paint goes down. I rolled it on with a 4″ roller and it settles out to a very smooth finish. No brush marks like the first Toto which is latex house paint. Everyone in the boating group has been talking about this for a while. This is the first time I’ve used it. At $8 a quart it looks like this is the way to go.
I’m planning to do the gunwale in red to go along with the shark mouth. Haven’t decided what color to paint the rear deck. I’ll could either go grey or jazz it up with the red. Supposed to paint when it’s above 50F and dry. Need to keep hoping for good weather to finish it up.
