Hull paint question

Post by nc721 »

I am building a Vera Cruise cabin cruiser that I am planning on keeping in the water most of the summer with occasional trips on the trailer to a few fresh water lakes near by. Home will be in the Hudson River in upstate New York. I had thought to use Blue Water Revolution paint but it seems to be unavailable. Looking for recommendations. Is there a paint that would work for the entire hull up to the sheer?

Tho it might be tempting to use house paint.I'm finding that boat bumpers will wear it off easily.doesn't seem to be hard paint.

Use a good marine paint. Interlux and Pettit have good offerings. I went down the new, latest greatest. Stick to the tried and true been around for decades stuff
