Boat Paint Job Tips
If your boat's gelcoat looks faded and dull then it's time to paint your boat. Doing so will not only seal and protect the integrity of the gelcoat, but the smoother finish will also make it look and feel faster.

Each brand of topside paint has its fillers, primers, and recommended prepping methods, so it's essential to use chemically compatible products. Stick with whatever the paint manufacturer suggests.

Use a two-part product and apply with a spray gun. They provide a hard, shiny finish that will last for years but they are difficult for the novice to get good results with. They are sensitive to exact mix ratios, require perfect conditions and special equipment. For the do-it-yourselfer, it's recommended using one-part products that are designed to be applied by the roll-and-tip method - roll on and smooth with a brush.

Apply the recommended primer using the roll-and-tip method. It's recommended using a 9-inch Redtree brand foam roller cover and a 9-inch roller tray and frame. First, mix the paint and thinner according to the manufacturer's specifications. The application works best with two people: one rolling, the other tipping.
