Deck painting
« on: 21 April, 2010, 11:56:29 »
Hi,

For a project for painting the whole deck and cockpit of a 1974 Contest 31, does anyone have any advice.
Does it worth to contact Conyplex ? Do they have a rehabilitation or restoring service ?

Wishing a good day and good wind.

You can contact MYS, Medemblik Yacht Service, which is part of the Conyplex holding. Do you intend to do it yourself or are you looking for someone to do the job for you?

Thanks BJ for your answer.
The job will be done by my local service dealer in South West of France.
He is not specialized and if there were factory specifications that I could give to him, I guess it would have been better.

I will contact MYS to quote for porthole and other accessories that may be needed.

Do you already experienced a deck painting ? What are the things to do and not to do ?

Have a nice day.

Well, I also contacted a painter to do the job for me, I'm not skilled enough... ;)   Does your dealer has former experience with paintjobs on boats? Most important: preparation and the use of good materials.

If I'm correct the portholes and other stuff were made by Goiot in those days but I don't know if they still have these models.

Yes my dealer is experienced but he is not Contest "approved". I will discuss with him next week...

Do you know if there are Contest original RAL colors for deck and hull ? I didn't find this.

Really love the blue one herewith (photo found on the net)  8)
and if I could identify the RAL and the original design, I guess I will choose this one for my restoration.

Good wind

Well, you can contact the guys at MYS and ask them for the RAL numbers of the current colour blue that is being used. And perhaps they als have a suggestion for the original blue, which is sligtly lighter, because it pre-dates the RAL standards.... ;)  For the hull they used 'norpol color 2000'  before 1985, the deck I don't know.

The former owner of my boat used sikkens yachtpaints, super gloss, alkyd+, nr 210, dark blue for painting the hull.
I don't know a lot about paint, but it sure looks ok till now.

Sikkens, sadly enough, doesn´t exist anymore. it is now part of international, being part of Akzo. I would go for 2k paint. 1k is too soft. 2k makes some more work but the result is stunning. We did itourseves on a parking lot (windy and dusty) and yet the result is good and dark blue. We used international.

As far a I know, the old by Contest used paint was a 2-K paint made by Double Coat (verffabriek de IJssel - www.de-ijssel-coatings.nl ).
They can make it in several (RAL) colours. Now you only have to find out which colour your boat original was or make a choiche fot a colour that is more or less simular to the original one.

Hello,

probably to late, but I can recommend 2K coatings from De Issel too.
I used those products for the paintjob of my 36 and it was a stunning result.
If you keep the basic references in mind it may be possible to do this job
by yourself.
As pointed out by Eric this company is able to mix more or less every colour
according to your project.

Hi Stephan,

Thanks, it's not too late and very encouraging to know that we can do it ourselves and reaching a good result.
I contacted De-Ijssel and wait for their answer.
I asked them for a colorcard, a quotation for the Double Coat Polyurethane product and advices about needed undercoat.
As you can see, the old paint is a little bit damaged...

Hi Laurent,  just for your information: Contest used Sikkens Autoflex paint back in those days. A simple 1-component paint, not sure if you can still buy it today.

Hello Laurent,

I can´t recommend to use 1K colours in this days - neither for a deck paintjob nor for other projects like hull painting.
Considering the amount of work you have to spend it is allways worth to apply the best reachable product available on the market.
In 2009/2010 I used the products from this company for my refit project and -if you like- it might be possible to give some hints from my
side to reach the best possible result.
I put a picture of my hull to this reply to show what is possible although we are not high skilled boat painters...

Wouah!!! It's a wonderful result.
You are not high skilled boat painters...you are high skilled very modest...
Thank you for your proposition. I'll come back to you via the message forum, when my project will be ready.
