    Starting a new 21 Liberator

    I just finished the new 22 last week, so I'm starting a new 21 Liberator today. Spent all day sanding it down. I'll start taping tomorrow. Gonna be white with red and black.

    I started taping today. Decided on a "scsllop" design. First step is to tape out the shapes I like. After the first side is done, I make a template so I can flip it over and make the other side symetric. I use a template on the curves in front and measure the lengths of the points. I continue to do this on the rest of the boat. Next I use 2" masking tape to tape off the areas that don't get paint. I'll paper the bigger areas. This is just the first color which will be black.

    Looking good - I find myself liking more and more the metalflake look on boats, especially when its a mix of old school and new school, something Randy seems to do quite well with - keep the pictures coming sir.

    I got the black on this afternoon. I could not wait till tomorrow, so I untaped the back section. Hard to see the red flake until it's cleared and outside.

    I untaped the boat today. Still need to sand it all down then clearcoat. Then the clear will be sanded until the graphics cannot be felt, them I'll clear coat again. Then the boat will be wetsanded and buffed 3 times with different grit compound. You can see in the 4th pic that I have marked any small imperfections. These will get touched up before clear coating.

    @wildman Randy all of your work is incredible, and this one is one of my favorites. The colors and lines of the design are perfect for that boat. Your work is just phenomenal, as always!

    Grinded and sanded down the rear transom area today. I will paint it with Awlgrip epoxy paint tomorrow. Cleans up much easier than webbed gelcoat
