Have you Painted your Sailboat

I know that some members have painted their sailboats,
I have a 1982 Morgan ketch, approx size 42 x 13
I was wondering what the approx quantities are require to paint the bottom, hull and deck.
Also whats the going rate to have a yard paint.

Also how satisfied were the members with the finished job? I have access to a commercial airless spry but tend to favor the roller method.
I am going to have to paint on the hard and the Location is mid Florida.Also wondering about home brewed formulas and things like adding pepper, anyone know what works.
With so many brands on the market its confusing, so information from someone that has "been there and done it" will really help
also looking sources for good economical/deals on the paint

Do yourself a favor and do NOT use airless, not even for the primer. I know what I charge for that job but it won't help you in FL.

I have a 1973 Morgan Ketch that is 41'3" x 13'10" w/4'3" draft. I'm about 100 miles north of you and in this area I would recommend 2 gallons of Petit Trinidad 75 for the bottom rolled on with no additives. I wax and buff my original freeboard and I've used Interlux topside for my non-skid w/ quartz sand added and Petit 2-part "perfection" for the deck that is not non-skid.


This is how I came out last after four years in the water with my "trinidad75" ,-lots of cruising from Maine to the Bahamas and a light scrub in the water twice a year.


I had the yard do this job (Flemming Island Marina, Orange Park, Fl) bottom paint, repaint name on transom, replace cutlass bearing & zinc, buff & wax freeboard for a total of $2,354.63


'take care and joy, Aythya crew
