Bottom Paint usage
« on: May 12, 2007, 06:20:31 PM »

I'm mystified....  I painted the bottom of my C34 today with Pettit Ultima and expected to use at least one and a half gallons of paint.  I applied what I thought to be one heavy coat and but used just slightly more than 1/2 gallon.  I plan on putting on a 2nd coat but I'm surprised I used so little for the first coat???

Dave : I use a 1/4" nap roller and use about 3/4 of a gallon.  You shouldn't be surprised.   :wink:
