i got the call from my buddy today, we got one on borrow for a year from a buddy, our cost was we have to paint it. ive done alot of house painting, but never marine painting. as i understand theres some sort of self etching primer that has to go on first? i think its just a regular beat up green john boat from what i understand so any tips on painting would be greatly appreciated. whatever pattern is on your boat looks great, how do you go about doing it?
