So, the question is, where were all you, my sage and wise canoeing friends when I decided to paint a canoe yellow? Over a dark grey primer? (I could have gone with a white primer). I had completely forgotten what LOUSY coverage yellow paint gave. I am using Kirby's Shaw Yellow. on a 1965 OT 50 pounder. I had to call Kirby's yesterday and order more paint. I sprayed the first coat, and then decided to brush the second to see if the coverage was any better. It wasn't. I just sprayed the 3rd, and it is looking much better, but it needs at least more coat. Never again!
