Bull279 thanks for the info! I forgot to mention I'd like to buy a gallon of paint for my base coat since I have a paint sprayer. Does that rustoleum seem like it will last a long time? I'd like to not have to repaint every few years as well
No problem. As far as lasting... you'll have to ask me in a couple of years.
It seems like it should do well for its use. I have a little 10ft flat-bottom john boat and I used 3 cans for the exterior base coat. I used maybe 2 for the inside. Once i used the self-etching primer ( I got it at NAPA) the paint stuck to it with no problem. The primer had a nice dark green color to it, looks like the color Lowe John boats come from the factory with.
I have a paint spray, but was kind of lazy and didn't feel like cleaning it after the fact. Link to thread with my Duck Boat thread
