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). Todd Bracken Dauntless, C&C 27 Mk. IV #915 Indianapolis, Indiana 


It takes 1.5 to 1.75 litters of VC17 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 recalculate what you'll need to finish the job once the second coat is on. David Weatherston Towser, Toronto C&C 27 Mk IV
