I would have t-cut the large area's before painting so as to get an even colour all round.

Don't know about river boat the CJR was a good inshore little craft in it's day and they are still popular for the first time buyer.

These little boats have stood up to the test of time and have a reasonable reputation, far better than the Dijon which was a pig in choppy waters.
Cheers keith :D

the CJR is an inshore boat and is capable of taken a 70hp engine believe or not, it has a catergory C hull, it was taken over by Seahog who renamed it the Trio. mine has a 30hp which pushes it at around 25kts plus and as keith says they are a very good platform for fishing. mine was resprayed as the previous owner had polished it to death, had it done with marine primer then a 2 pac for top coat. its on the boat register with pics. they look nice when they are kept clean. worth the effort cant wait to see yours when its finished andrew. peter :) Image

Heres my boat with its first coat of signal red!
