Valspar top side paint

I looked through the past threads to try to find this but I couldn't find what I was looking for, maybe someone can give some advise? I just bought a 1975 Cape Dory 25 as a project boat to keep me busy. Like the rest of us I want to keep the cost to a minimum. I wondered if anyone used Valspar marine top side paint? I got some at Lowes. very cheap, I am thinking about starting on the inside and see how this paint works. Also should a primer be used first? any thoughts???
Thanks very much, Ray

I've no experience with Valspar but any paint I have seen in its original can has instructions which state if primer is required for different surfaces.

I have used valspar exterior paint inside the boat without a problem

The only topside paint i saw at Lowes was the rustolem brand and while low cost there all one part paints with durabilty in line with the cost


How bad is the gelcoat as a lot can be doen with the correct buffing to bring it back

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

If you can restore the gelcoat to a reasonable condition that would be much better. Once you start painting it will need to be repainted regularly. With a one part like Brightside maybe every 4 or 5 years, longer with a 2 part like Perfection.

valspar top sides

The gel is shot. The non skid is worn off in most areas, I'm going to use perfection on the hull and maybe the deck as well? I want to do all the interior storage areas in the valspar to see hot it looks and maybe the rest of the interior as well?

I stand corrected, it is Rustolium ,not Valspar, I used the primer and it seems to work pretty good?

are you talking paint for the deck (top sides are side of the boat above the water) one part paints on the deck won't stand up very long

I was going to use the one part paint for the interior only, and use something like Interlux Perfection for outside?
