David,

I’d spend the few extra bucks and get a good 3M tape. I just did some Awlcraft 
painting for gloss and non-skid on my hatches and I used the Awlgrip (and my 
painter) recommended 3M 218 Fine Line tape for masking the gloss vs. non-skid 
prior to spraying. I’ll be masking off the entire deck sometime this week or 
next and I find the 218 properties to be easy to use. Electrical tape is a bit 
stretchy and I’m not fond of the glue used.

Don’t know what your setup with the boat in the yard is but a good way to mark 
the waterline and boot stripes is with a laser. Boat’s gotta be level 
fore-and-aft and side-to-side.

Best,
Dave Godwin
