Etch primers for rudder painting

Rudder etch primer coating.
We used a special twin pack etch primer on this rudder which would make a great bond to the tie coat before antifoul application.

Irwin 54 rudder etch primed

This is always a nice part of the job,it finishes the process as far as we are concerned too,the next step is to hang the rudder and apply International Paints Interprotect primer.The paint we have used is also an etch primer and a twin pack,two coats with a foam roller covers just about anything,it will etch to metals,epoxies and GRP.

The job needs two more applications on the otherside,I can then close for a bit of a break having worked through the Christmas and New Year holidays,there was little choice if yacht Chessie,the Irwin 54, this rudder will fit, was to have a chance of starting the next leg of the ARC Around the World Rally next saturday the 8th of January 2011 starting in Hout Bay.
