J9 Pataka decks get coat of G4

Trevor Chanter has been busy on the decks of J9 ‘Pataka’.

After a few years of hard use, the decks were looking in need of a little care and attention, so Trevor decided to try out the much discussed ‘G4’.

So far his thoughts were: “not overly impressed, but OK”

On the whole, although I have used it quite a bit, I would say that my impression was much the same. There is no doubt that you can get good results with it and I admit it is cheap, but there is quite an art to getting the best out of it.

Not like old Blakes Woodseal (RIP), which was such a wonder-primer. Maybe we will learn to use G4 instead, but maybe the next ‘best-practice’ is yet to be truly established.
