need a new paint job on my bailey bridge boat?

Postby Hit'mHard » Mon Oct 17, 2011 5:44 am

Was wondering what type of paint to use that is tough and last. I have a Bailey bridge boat it has no leaks but just a little bit of moisture buildup Idk if I should use a undercoating or tough paint. Would like to paint the whole boat in the same thing any suggestions?

Had a blue heron try to land on the top rail last weekend, while we were in it... :lol3:

Will be on the ocean this week but expecting great results.

That's a tank on water. Is the upper portion of the blind riveted sheet metal?

Partly sheet metal...

The frame is all aluminum, welded to the gunnels. Most of the covering is from the old aluminum sheet stock panels that came with the boat's old blind system. I took them a part and re-attached to the frame work. I didn't have enough aluminum stock to finish and my girlfriend had some old heating duct work in the basement, so I "cleaned" the basement and took apart the duct work and wellah!!! the blind was finished! They are riveted at the seams but sheet metal screwed to the frame and pressure treated runners.
