Rob, I will modify the dolly after I paint the bottom and flip it over.
Marc, ain't no way next spring! Have to work and remodel my kitchen.
Ray, The Jetstreaks were all white hulls and one of 3 colors on top.Baby blue, red or gold. I'm considering other options but will stay fairly close to original with a really nice blue/teal metallic deck and fins. We shall see. Who knows about all those Mercs. Probably be handed down to young Marc one day!

Looking good John,
How much gets paint?
The flush patches look good, what's that rack full of Mercury's for? :biggrin:

John, does the boat dolly accommodate the hull when it is right side up ?

A little more progress. More holes patched (thank you Ray for the repair piece). Local shop welded crack across the transom. Took advantage of the warm weather yesterday to finish stripping and final wash.

Hey. Marc I don't really know I just posted that link. I'm not sure who I bought the Zolotone from. I bought many Eastwood products back when I was into vintage cars. Great company.

Yep the Zolotone grey. The original black seems to me it would be too hot.Has to be sparyed with a pressure pot paint system. Kind of a pain.
