Re: Marine Paint vs Automotive

a V 17 shouldn't take more than a couple of quarts of paint, and if you're doing it yourself, unless you are going to spray it, you might as well use single stage paint like brightside. economical, forgiving, tough. painting, filling fairing, priming the hull and deck of our 23' boat (about twice the total surface are as the venture 17) cost us less than $500 all in , including tape, sandpaper, thinner, brushes, rollers, paint, primer,

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:
