I really like the bathtub floor concept.  I wrapped the paint up about 3″ all the way around.  It gives the floor a very sealed, finished and protected look.

I may still add a fleck to the floor to disguise dirt and shoe marks, but I’ll give it a few days and then decide.  I’m now officially ready to start hooking up the steering cable and other control cables.  This is the moment my dad (official motor head) has been waiting for.  I’ll get more excited once I feel the outboard apply thrust to the boat.

Cockpit Floor Paint

It’s finally time to paint the cockpit floor.  After sanding all the edges and rough spots, I taped off the top line and rolled on a coat of Rust-Oleum Gloss Grey enamel with anti skid aluminum added.  This should make for a tough, safe floor.

Take a look:

After this cures, I’ll roll on another coat or two and then be ready to install cabling and steering mechanism.
