paint for a duck boat

3 posts in this topic

I have an old boat that i will be painting this week. I saw that cabelas has some dull marine paint. I was planning on using spray paint. Will any flat paint work? Should i brush the cabelas marine paint? or spray paint it? thanks for any replies

Zeek, I just went thru the same thing. My boat is a 14 ft. aluminum. I had no old paint to strip off, so I washed really good with soap and water. Used scrub pads to scratch up the aluminum some, then wiped down with lacquer thinner. I then put on a coat of primer. For paint I used rust-oleum spray paint. The base coat I used was forest green and now I'm in the process of figuring out what camo pattern to use. Hope that helps.

Use a good roll-on or brush-on exterior oil based metal or alum. primer. Then you can top coat it with any flat paint. Spray paint will work for that.

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.

      Last year I went to the show to buy and thought Reed's would be the best and they came through again. I bought a Helix 10 from them and I got a free mapping chip. Below the price everyone else had at the show or outside the show. Also got a cheaper price on a new MinnKota that integrates with the Helix 10. When all the smoke cleared, I had everything in about 10 days.
