question How Much Paint? (TBracken)
Posted: 3:14:58 pm on 3/29/2014 Modified: Never
Has anyone calculated the square feet of:
The deck area?
The hull topsides?
The underwater wetted surface area?

Bottom line: I'm trying to estimate how much primer and finish coat paint I'm going to need (assuming 3 coats of primer and 3 of finish).

It takes 1.5 to 1.75 litters of VC-17 to paint Towser's bottom. You should be able to calculate the area of the deck and topsides from the plan and deck views in Evolution. You'll have to do a bit of guesstimating for the cockpit sides plus an allowance for the curvature of the deck and topsides, but it should be close enough, particularly if you add a ten or fifteen per cent fudge factor.

Alternatively, factor deliberately short and re-calculate what you'll need to finish the job once the second coat is on.
