A quart of paint typically covers 100 sq ft. A half-pint will probably cover about 20 sq. ft, since you lose more to the container on smaller containers of paint. 4" x 27' is about 9 sq. ft. YMMV.

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.

hellosailor has a spectacular aura about hellosailor has a spectacular aura about
"to paint the top sides "
Then you'll need to measure the freeboard. Figure 30' times the freeboard height times two sides, for the amount of coverage you'll need.

I think the OP's main concern is whether the half-pint would do the boot and cove stripes on the boat... or that is at least how I read it... and I think, if he's careful, he can probably do the boot and cove stripes with two coats using a half-pint of paint.

yes and no SD, yes i wanted to know if the half pint can, can do the stripes. and i stated wrong, by topside i meant the deck, should have said the deck

i also want to paint the deck, which i figure is about 200 to 250 square feet if i include the non skid and vertical parts of the cockpit.

If you are going to paint the deck with brightsides, be prepared to repaint every two or three years, even with excellent prep.

I use brightsides on my deck because I am cheap and can accept a good enough finish, but if you want a quality finish to be proud of then do the best prep possible including removing all fittings and use a two part epoxy.

If you're painting the deck, cabintop and cockpit, what I would recommend is removing as much of the hardware as you can. Mask off the non-skid areas cutting into the non-skid area by about two inches, and then paint the "smooth" areas with whatever paint you are planning to use. Then mask off the "smooth" areas and paint the non-skid areas with something like DURABAK or KIWIGRIP. This will minimize the amount of paint you need and give you a very good non-skid surface.

On any paint job, 95% of the work is in the preparation, and that will make or break the paint job. Even an expensive two-part LPU paint won't last very long or look very good unless the prep was done properly.

i do know prep is the key.

i was planning on using perfection on the deck, and brightsides for the stripes. i understand the non skid issues with painting and have a plan for that.

my plan is to do the non skid areas with mixed paint and grip, then spray the whole deck.

i know there are other ways like paint then nonskid with other products.

Be careful if you're spraying a two-part paint. Most of them are pretty toxic and you need to have the right respirator gear to do it safely.
