After another week of sanding I have painted the Ebihen 15. I used an HVLP sprayer that I purchased on line from WoodCraft the Earlex HVLP Spray Station. I can highly recommend this sprayer. It worked to perfection within my inexperienced hands. My first coat was put on too thick and I got a few runs, but after cleaning up and starting over again I was able to put on pretty good coats of paint. I used about a quart and a 1/4 for the hull, thinned about 25%. Coverage is good, and it is setting up well. The System Three WR-LPU paint is easy to use and the results are good. I don’t expect to have a high gloss finish, preferring a satin sheen.
