Paint Options (other than Parker)

Postby RugerandMe » Mon May 19, 2014 3:28 pm

Any other good options besides parkers or duralux out there for fiberglass? Did a quick search and these two were all I came up with on this forum.

Really digging this color combo on the boat in this picture. Interior looks to be Sand so no problem but what is the exterior color? Doesn't match any of Parkers colors I don't think and seems to be a mixture of Bay Gray and Marsh Grass maybe?

Appreciate any help.

I think its the same colir as the inside just the shadow and reflection of the water are making it look different. As for the paint question i am no use, ive always used parkers and has worked well with good primer

Ruger, you might pm ncsuducker on here in the nc forum. Brad builds boats (Toller Boatworks) and can probably help you out.

I just painted an aluminum boat, fiber glass motor, wood floor, and plastic hydrofoil on a duck boat with Hunter Specialty paint in the can (not rattle can). I have always been a firm believer in Parkers but due to availability and color selection I have switched. I just put the boat on the water for a test a run. I was thoroughly impressed with the new paint. Hunter Specialties has definitely made some improvements in the past five years. NONE of the paint lifted. I was very hard on the boat, running it in a salt water low tide marsh. Prep was simple, a light acetone rub on all surface except the wood. The boat was pre-painted by tracker but faded with over ten years of sun exposure. I let the paint/boat bake in the sun for about ten days prior to testing on the water. Hope this helped

Even though you want other options, Parker is still a great paint. Used it on mine last season and after taking my boat over oyster beds and logs on rivers along with dog clawing the hell out of the surface it is still holding up great! Proper prep is all that is needed! Also look into lock stock and barrel, I think they sell paint you may like.

Thanks tsamp. It's not that I don't like Parkers, I am really just looking for other color options. Thanks for the lead on lock stock and barrel. I will check them out too.

Agree with others, do as recommended by Parker's for prep and waiting and it's pretty awesome.

Would think a good paint store could help you with tinting one of the Parker colors to fit your need, while keeping the integrity of the paint.

Good luck, that color scheme in the picture is very nice two tone .

Just a thought but could you buy Parker's paint and go to Lowe's or Home Depot and just have them tint it to the color you would want?

Sound's risky if they mess it up!

If you order Parker's directly from them if I remember right it's like $35 a gallon.

You could prolly get the exact paint from lowes. It's just an oil based enamel paint. Bit I'm sure you could get it mixed someplace.

I second 1quacker-Lou Tisch's Flat Marine Enamel from Lock Stock Barrel is by far the best paint I've ever seen.

Well, it has been slow going but wanted to post a few pics of the progress since a couple of you asked. Went with Lock Stock and Barrel paint and seems to be doing well. Boat was white on the inside and had a Glossy Black hull. Have not got to the hull yet but the inside is just about done. Two Toned the console with the deck and bought new hatches to match the two tone look.

Next week will try and start on the hull.

Looks great man! It's always fun getting em ready for season but also can be a pain! Worth it though when out smashing ducks and geese!

Second. Not sure if you ever got up with ncsuducker or not, but he turned me into the stuff as well. Also, Lou was super helpful, hooked me up with the colors I wanted for my camo, and also helped me out with the pattern/scheme. Great little company.

I did talk to ducker and got some good advice from him. I think it will turn out great when I finally get done.

Update: Got the hull finished today and most of the hardware and accessories back on the console and the gunnels. I think I am going to be really happy with the lock stock and barrel paint. Hull color ended up a little darker brown than I wanted but pretty close to the reference picture above that I was shooting for.

Thanks to everyone that kicked in advice and guidance on this.
