repainting a boat.

Postby bassinator » Wed Nov 23, 2005 10:59 am

Camo on the boat is getting kind of ugly and beat up, so I was wondering what the best way to refinish a boat is. Should I sand it, roll it and then spray paint my grass stencils on there? Is there a better way to do it? Thanks.

Sand it, use a good primer, then spray the whole thing.
If the hunting is cold, luckily so is the beer!

I've never done it before, my uncle did it for me. I'm going to sand it, prime, and then roll it with olive. Then I'm going to shadow grass it with marsh tan. I'll post pics later.

Will the tan be your base?

well, I spent all of the thanksgiving holiday workin on this stinking boat and it is looking good for an older boat. Rewired trailer, put new lights on, powersanded and brushpainted trailer w/ black rustoleum, and painted boat olive. Once the new tires, bearings, and races come in, the trailer will be finished. Then I just have to finish installing gun holders, shell holders and cooler in the boat. :thumbsup:
