Actually, most of the time was spent painting the front porch rail, but I’m sure that was good practice 🙂 Did get pretty much all the paint on the dinghy… there are a lot of pieces/sides/edges to this thing. Just trying to get a decent coat of paint on a small folding boat gives me a much better idea (nightmare?) of painting a full size boat. No wonder it takes weeks/months 🙂 Hang in there folks! I’m sure you’re doing a better job than I am!
