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,

      I see on the cam that Joe's gate is open, but the access is pretty trashed with cones out front. Is it still driveable?

      I also needed to buy a receiver so my total cost was $500 but they did have them at Scheels beginning of the year but you can buy it from dish. I think they charge $7 a month for use of the receiver.

      I was out last night in west metro and the water had mostly either frozen again or gone down the open holes. I was pleasantly surprised. We lost about an inch of ice though the top few inches were starting to soften.

      I would build a frame that your current otter sled would fit in that has downhill skis on the bottom of it.  I did this for my setup that is very similar to yours, I can pull 100 pounds through 8" of snow with very little effort.  Side note I wouldn't pull it with a four wheeler, mine slides to easy and wants to hit the back of the wheeler when I try to stop.
