Thank you! This is exactly what I needed someone to say. Hard to spend 500$ on paint when that's all you paid for the boat. HA HA Looking forward to getting it on the water.

Fair Winds!

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,

If you're spraying polyurethane, you'd better have a really good respirator, or you're going to die.

By really good he means a supplied air respirator - basically scuba gear. Two part poly paints have cyanide in them - the gas used in gas chambers - amongst other major nasties.

Think Bhopal.

For your first attempt I agree with using Brightside or another one-part paint.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
