Painting My South Jersey Beach Skiff
by Steve Hall
(Merritt Island, Florida)
I have just taken ownership of a Florida Cyprus wood built South Jersey Beach Skiff.
It is in great shape just needing a fresh coat of paint inside and out and a small 1/8"inch crack in the hull (bottom) sealing.
I have several questions
1) What would be recommended for the crack sealing.
2) Do you have a preference of the type of paint to be used inside and outside.
3) Were the original Beach Skiffs any one or a series of standard colors as I don't want to insult the name and style painting the boat the wrong color
I plan on painting the outside of the hull Navy blue and the inside white with the top trim and deck areas gold.
The boat now is painted inside and out all white with a light brown for the deck areas.
Thank you for any and all advice.
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
