Absolutely. You don't need a pressurized hood, but if you have one available that would be great. Just make sure your mask fits properly and has new cartridges. Make sure the cartridges are compatible with the paint being used. If you're not sure, call the paint co.

If your mask has a leak anywhere around the skirt (I have a big beak and it's a problem) you'll feel it in your lungs almost immediately. STOP - and fix the problem. If you have to walk away from a partially painted boat, oh well. Sanding and starting over beats long term health problems hands down.

Also note - some boatyards will not allow you to do it yourself unless you do it in one of their set-ups and have some kind of certification (or hire one of their guys as a consultant)....follow-up on US Pirates suggestion...

BTW, if you're planning on spraying a two-part LPU, you'd better have an enclosed facility to do it in... since you're be responsible for any problems the spraying causes to people nearby. Spraying a isocyanate-based paint without a enclosed building is a really bad idea.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I have worked in the "painting" end of manufacturing for 32 years so I have a little experience.
2K paints(isocyanate) are nasty things.
I am not going to make a "blanket recomendation" for your protection needs because a lot of people will ignore it any way. Just sufice it to say this is nasty stuff and there are long term effects from exposure and it CAN KILL you right away.
Ask the supplier for a MSDS ( material safety data sheet ) before you purchase the product. You can also usually find it on on a manufacturers web site. READ IT CAREFULLY!!!!!!!!! Decide if you really want to mess with it. Follow the PPE recomendations to the letter. If they say Supplied Air Respirator or Supplied Air Hood it is for a reason. This is one of the few times the Government is your friend. The manufacturer is required to provide this info to you. 10 minutes of reading is worth it.

2K paints are wonderfull things but the finished product is hard as a rock and almost impossible to sand. So unless you are a really good sprayer or have a lot of time on your hands for sanding, find someone who knows what they are doing.

With any painting that requires a respirator the "large beak" is a fit problem. So is any facial hair. To get a proper fit you need to shave it clean. At the least you will probably scare the neighbors and you wife will want to know who you are if she is used to seeing the mustache and beard.

Enough preaching. Sorry Rev.Mike. Just want everyone to be safe.

You need more then just a filter, you need a respirator, Otherwise you will glue your lungs together when spraying 2 part lpu.

If you do enough prep work, even a DIY paint job can come out pretty nice.
