Boat Painting

Recommended Posts

Coach1310

2 years ago I bought a 16' Alumacraft from a friend of my Dad's. He purchased a cabin and the boat was part of the deal. Here is the thing. The boat was hardly ever used and inside is in mint condition, however the boat was left tied to the dock each summer with no bumpers, etc. How much does it cost to get a boat repainted? Where can I have this done? I got a great deal on the boat and with a new paint job I would be set for many years! Any help would be great.

I've had a repair and painting done at George's Repair in East Bethel. I was happy with their work.

Just call a boat repair shop, describe the boat, ask them to give you a ballpark price over the phone, add 20% and you'll be close.

A friend of mine had his Crestliner repainted at the local auto body shop. It looks brand new and he ordered the new decals so it looks like a 2005 Crestliner. He had it painted at Autoworks Body and Paint in Starbuck, MN

I bought an older Lund 16 foot aluminum boat this spring. The paint was all faded and scratched. I didn't think it would be worth the money to have someone repaint an older boat, so I did it myself. I sanded down the old paint, primed it, used the auto spray paint stuff and put a couple coats of clear coat on top of that. Looks great.

After at least 50 trips this year, the paint is still holding up fine.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter
    • Big Red Lodge
      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
    • Big Red Lodge
      I have not heard of any either, but the weather is looking good.  I'm optimist for opener

      Thanks for your updates Cliff . Out of curiosity , if this date holds true of Monday April 30th for the start of this years event , would you happen to know how this date sits with past late ice out years , for instance 1996 , 2013 ?
