    "I'm going to make myself get up early tomorrow (Sunday) so I can get the first topcoat down before the wind pipes up."

    I'm assuming the tenting keeps the dew off. Do you have a humidity window?

    I immediately thought it was a "Bianchi Green" So close. Looks great!

    I went to the high end of the recommended amount of solvent and never regretted it, I had heard about the special additive that made tipping almost unnecessary, but too late as it needed to be ordered, Svens didn't carry it, and the painting weather window had arrived!!. Also found i needed to add solvent as I went even if I covered the paint container between pour-outs into the tray. Doing the first coat I didnt mix in the extra solvent well enough, which created some extra thin spots!
    4" roller seemed so small compared to the 30' of boat, but after the first coat I was glad i went small, as it made the paint manageable.

    Good to see the tent! The dew killed the shine of my second cabin side coat even though I finished painting around 2 PM!

    Keep going! It's going to look great!!
