paint for a duck boat


Recommended Posts

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.
