Boat Repaint

5 posts in this topic

I've posted this off-topic in the boat & motor section but know there are alot of knowledgeable folks on this board who live in this area. I have a 1998 Lund Fisherman 21 foot that is starting to show some wear. Scratches, scuffs, etc., After looking at the cost of a similar new boat (about 45K), I thought it might make some sense to consider repainting. If I did repaint, I would want to use the original Lund paint and stickers, and really would like a quality job similar to the original factory job that was done. Also, new stickers, emblems, etc. Would appreciate any thoughts or comments on doing this. Does anyone know someone or a shop in the area that has done this type of work and does quality work? Thanks for the input.

I know that Lund in NY Mills will do those jobs. My brother had that done on an insurance claim and was very pleased. They will also redo interior components up to the standard of the year of the boat. They will not install upgrades.

Try asking Humes in Hermantown. I've seen a few boats for sale there and assume he has repainted those which looked nice. Otherwise, I had a retired lund guy in NY Mills repaint and resticker my 14ft lund a few years ago. I don't have his name or contact info but was referred to me after checking into it with a dealer in that area. I am pretty satisfied. Good luck.

I have a friend who is a retired painter and he used to paint boats for a living. He did mine and it looks great. If you're interested I can have him call or email ya,

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?

      Interesting point, BT.  I think our houses caught one perch this year, and I can't say that I knowingly marked one small one (except for when I was down in the bays on the south side).  I have no doubt that they are still in the lake, but I just ain't seeing any.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.
