Don't want to paint ?

Postby LEWDOG » Sun Aug 07, 2005 5:13 pm

I have a fishing firberglass boat that is white , I want to cover it without having to paint it , Any ideas ? I just got some contact paper that I was going to try , has anyone tried it and if so how long will it last before the peeling will start ? Does anyone know of something that can be put onto a fg boat that one could paint over , so the paint will come off easier come summer ? Last , would you just give up on the idea and just paint the dang thing ?

we'll depending how desperate you are, you could use a WIDE clear packaging tape, it will take you a little while but you should be able to do it in an afternoon for sure, then come summer, peel the tape off! OR you could use those giant rolls of packaging wrap, the clear thin plastic stuff, its pretty sticky to itself, kind of like ceran wrap! I know most hardware places should sell it....just put lots on and repair it threw the season......just a couple ideas....-Chris good luck :thumbsup:

There is a product called CamoClad, that is camo contact type of vinyl. I occasional see it on trucks and OB motor covers.

It may be what you are looking for. Just do a Google for more info on it.

I had a simalar problem when I first started duck hunting. I was borrowing a boat. I wanted a temporary camo to cover the boat. I went to a local tent and awning company and bought used side walls for a tent. They had some that they didn't use anymore that I was able to buy real cheap. I got about 50feet of it for $10.00. It was even od green. then I bought spray paint and painted it camo. Then I hung it on the sides of the boat and used it to cover anything else i needed to. I just let the canvas lay on the water. As long as you don't put it away wet it will last a long time. I have had this canvas for about 15 years and last year we used it to make a blind on a boat and it is still in good shape.

LEWDOG, I've got an aluminum fishing boat that I'm gonna use this season and my plan it to hang some burlap over the side of the thing and put down some astro turf to protect the carpets. Then I'm gonna put a boat blind on it that I'm gonna build out of some conduit.

Good luck. I know I wouldn't want to paint a fiberglass boat or hassles with covering and painting over that, but good luck in whatever you decide.

packaging tape doesn't come off very easily with time. I got some on my back fence. I put it on there in july and now is stuck on there like paint. But I'm sure the vegas summer heat had some role in that.
