I would not rattle can it, but would brush paint it. Home Depot sells Everymore paint which can be used over metal surfaces. I am sure there are lot of paint that will cover metal. Have you thought of covering the area in no slip material?

Be hard to get er' to match, 1972 paint containted lead. You'll have to paint the entire floor, use a poly-type paint and just paint over the existing paint, don't try to strip the old stuff off!

I am in the process of repainting the interior of my '82 Lund Pro-angler. The factory paint was peeling of in pretty good size pieces. I went to the local CarQuest store and they sold me some Aircraft paint remover. This stuff worked great. Just brush it on, and wait a few minutes, old paint just bubbles and can be scraped away. Took me about 6 hours to strip it all. I have a carpeted floor, so I only did the side walls, transom area, and bow cover.

I felt I needed to strip the old paint off, because it did not make much sense to paint new over peeling paint(new would just peel again). Now all I have to do is use an aluminum cleaner and then repaint. I am going to use a tintable bedliner. This can be tinted any color and will match very close to my new seats. It will roll on and depending on the nap of the roller, I will get a durable not slip finish on the inside of my boat that will take a beating from feet resting on the walls and so forth.

Good luck on your project!!!

      Dang, pulled the battery and put her in storage just last week or that sounds like fun. With all this wet weather it has really put me behind on getting all the fall chores done before hunting season and the winter hits and I need get the sled and ice stuff ready.  I had breakfast at Our Place just this morning coming down from Ely and was thinking of all the rides I have done in that area the last few years.  Lets try to set up a ride-trout outing next spring. 🙂

      Fishing Friday and Saturday was a dramatic shift. Seems the west wind got them going. Found a reef on Friday that was loaded up with fish and they were hungry. Fished it for a few hours before losing the battle to the cold. 3 pig smallies up top in 18-20 feet, 3 keeper walleyes between 16-18" and one 25" on the sides of the reef to the transition in 24-30 feet, and 2 jumbos off the transition in the mud at 32 feet. Also lost a BIG fish--the kind that your heart sinks when it comes off the line.    Saturday was more of the same. Biting a little lighter but we managed 6 walleyes from 15-19" in between the rain and getting blown off the lake. Could've easily limited if not for some "miscues"   Did try a little bit of trolling close to dark but only picked up a small muskie. Lots of guys out trolling all weekend but I'm not sure if they were going for walleyes or muskies. Interested to know if anyone on here was one of those guys and will give a report.    Wish I was starting my trip now instead of sitting at home. I think this is going to be a phenomenal week of fishing now that the weather is going to stabilize and warm up. Best of luck to everyone the rest of the year and stay safe. Saw some of the biggest waves I've seen on vermilion with the wind last week. Can get hairy pretty quickly out there

      We saw some late birds today also in west central MN.  The beans looked horrible and most corn was still in.  In 2 hours of driving I only saw three corn fields being combined each way.   We saw birds and got some roosters.  About 30% mature to 70% juveniles, not counting those late birds that didn’t fly well.  Birds seemed really jumpy today - odd for opener.  Flushing wild like late season.   Man, my pheasant legs ain’t what they used ta be! 😨

      I was wondering if raps at 2 mph would work now. Will the fish still chase them down when the water temps are in the low 40s?

      Thanks for the water temps. Unfortunately my depth finder temp gauge was correct.
