This isn't a tackle question exactly but I would like to get my aluminum boat painted. Any ideas on where I should take it?
Thanks,

Gary, since it's a metal boat I bet any auto body shop could do you up.


Is this like a Lund type boat all rigged out or what??

I did mine with Rustoleum and a brush. :tongue: Not a great paint job but at least it's all one color! ;D

1) Sand it.

2) Wipe it down with denatured alcohol

3) Use a self-etching primer MADE FOR ALUMINUM

4) Paint it. Roll-and-tip or spray both work good.

the end.

Yes Pistol it is an aluminum 17' 6" crestliner rigged, trailered and all. Think it will be tough to
do myself. Will check youtube though.
Thanks all !

Take and get it coated with Rhino Liner (bed liner). Bullet proof, it will last forever.
