Default Aluminum Boat Paint

Ive had enough wisecracks about my boat color. Anyone know what type of paint to purchase and where to find it? Painter's Supply had no clue. Any suggestions?

I had good results with Sherwin Williams exterior paint...I believe it was for aluminum siding applications. There was a pretty good selection of colors.

I looked at the automobile paint...great colors...much higher cost...and if I remember right, there was quite a bit of surface prep needed...can't recall for sure.

Make sure you use a good primer first...Getting paint to stick to Aluminum can be tricky...

Picking up self etching primer today. Going to take pics as I go in order to post as a restoration project. Maybe I can actually post them! Looks like I will be busy for the next few days.

Didn't stop us from us kicking the crap out of the lakers on vanilla leeches!

What about using bed liner paint on the inside? Anyone done this?

I'm a painter. Sherwin Williams makes a direct to metal paint that doesn't require a primer and holds up well. Alot cheaper than auto paint.
