Super Florida 637, 1962

Postby Thierrylao » Tue May 05, 2015 5:10 am

Can somebody tell me what was the color of the hull on my boat from factory?
Was it according the customer, or white, green...?
I see all colors, and may be all the hull of the same color and some have the front different from the rear part?
I see the water line is highlighted with a line of the same color of the seats!
The seats color was according the customers? Or all red in my batch?

Super Florida was a red bottom with to small white waterline stripes (3/4") wide. There is also a area under which is an anti-fouling paint. Interlux Bright Red is a very close match to the color.

Hi Don, I love that picture.
We can see that the epoxy protection can go everywhere higher than the water line, so it makes a very good protection all over the wet hull.
By the way, is it necassary to put a treatment on the wood to prevent it from any animal to eat this genuine wood, while its bare wood?
Thanks,
Thierry

Most people strip to bare wood, then make new the screws to tighten the bottom (replace or tighten). Then put down an epoxy sealer like Interlux 2000E, then paint with Interlux paint. If you need more details let me know

Thanks a lot.
Very interesting concerning the screws!!!

I will look if we can get the Interlux 2000E and Interlux paint, or similar around our place (Arcachon, France).
We should be able to find that in one of the ship chandler 's shop!?
Is it that Interlux paint that will give the red finish?

Yes, Interlux Bright Red is the color. You can match that up to a red available in your part of the world.
