Pedestal Refinishing

Greetings again,

While I have my pedestal off the boat, I was toying with the idea of scuffing it up with some 180 grit and hitting it with a can of spray paint in a white that's eyeballed close to the current color.

I know the original Edson pedestal is powder coated with unobtaniam. Mine doesn't look bad at a distance, but the finish is getting to be in rough shape. After Awl-Grip on the topsides it looks a little conspicious. Never should have made the rest of the boat look so darn good!

I don't recall banging too much on it, and I would think that a white-on-white scratch wouldn't show much anyway. I have seen the Edson document which recommends an expensive and labor intensive Interlux process. I'm sure that would look gorgeous, but not sure I want to put that much into it. Maybe?

Any reason why a can of premium Krylon or Rust-o-leum after a nice scuff and cleaning wouldn't make it look great and last for a long time? I hit my toe rails with flat black, and while I have scratched them in a few places they look unbelieveable.

For the record, this is a fresh-water only boat.

Thoughts appreciated as always.

Thanks,
Chris

Do it. Worst case scenario, it doesn't look good in a couple years and then you splurge to have it blasted and powder coated.

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