It's simple, if your girlfriend does not go hunting, fishing or Bowfishing with you, then keep looking. When dating my wife went Bowhunting with me, fishing, ATV's, camping and took really good care of me at night... keeper.

Thanks guys!! It is taking me some time and elbow grease but I make it that way so I appreciate it more lol.

So last night I finished sanding the transom but didn't take any pictures.

My original plan was to spray paint it dark grey but a guy I work with said i should use real paint and roll it or brush it on... Anyone have suggestions?

I don't know about fiberglass but buddy took his to a trailer repair shop and they taped it up, primed and shot it all Black for $300 using industrial quality paint they use on trailers. I bet paint would have been half that much or more for a 20/72. Might check around and then price materials for you to do it yourself..

Agreed, it isn't that my wife won't bowfish, she just wants to go for a few hours, I want to stay out till the sun comes up.

My wife's a trooper, she's back packed into hidden lakes with me and slept on the ground by the fire with me. Not many women will do that these days.

Real paint? Spray paint isn't real?

It's all in the prep no matter what paint you use. The nice thing about spray paint is how easy touch ups are.

You can get a inexpensive HVLP paint gun from harbor freight that isn't bad, then use industrial or implement paint.

Or you can roll it, it will certainly look better if it's sprayed on.

I know spray paint is real paint. I'm just wondering if anyone has experience in doing this if they prefer rattle can spray paint or roll/brush it on?

If you use spray paint make sure the can isn't cold. I use a hair dryer or a heat gun to warm it up, it makes a big difference. It doesn't need to be so hot you can't hold it, 90-100* is perfect.

The worst thing you can do is use a cold can.
