I have a 22' sailboat that needs new bottom paint
since everything is sanded down through the original paint
I have done a search and read many threads about paints
but like everyone it seems my questions aren't answered.
I want to paint
the boat from the rubrail down one solid color then paint a 4" or 5" waterline stripe. I want it all an white color with a blue strip probably, and I think I should have the decks the same color. I have been flipping back and forth through the pages of my West Marine cataloge reading about the different paints. I don't think I need an antifouling paint because the boat isn't going to be in the water for an extended period of time, no more than a weekend.
Here are a couple I have found that look like they might fit the bill.
VC Performance Epoxy
with Teflon (seems the best)
-it's a 2-part paint so it should hold up well
-2 quarts for $60 and 2 gallons for $180
-3 to 4 coats needed
-No option to choose a color?????
Interlux Perfection 2-part Polyurethane
-half gallons for $120
-coats, 2 or 3
-not sure if it's meant for use under the water line
Seems like the VC is better for my situation but I don't see where I can choose a color. I also wonder if I could find a paint for the deck in the same color.
What you think?
