Re: How much paint will I need to do the bottom of a 30 footer
I think that the answer is; it depends.
Four years ago I did the bottom of my O'day 35 (5.7' keel). It took almost 2 gallons of West Marine's CPP paint.
The next year I had the bottom soda blasted, and painted with 3 coats of Pettit Hydrocoat professionally (1 coat red, 2 coats blue). I supplied the paint, and the yard returned half of what I gave them.
Yesterday I did the bottom with Pettit Hydrocoat. I was very (pleasantly) surprised when it used less than a gallon for 1 coat. My helpers and I used two roller trays, and two 9" x ¼" nap rollers and a small brush.
