CoastalEddie For that size boat a gallon should be more than enough for two coats overall, plus and extra coat or two at the waterline and on the leading edges of the keel and rudder. Depending on the brand of paint, you might also want to mix in a little brushing thinner --- it will make the paint go on much more smoothly (and, for reasons that I've never fully understood, seems to make the paint stick a bit better).

CalebD I use 1 gal. for 2 coats on my Tartan 27' with almost none left over.

How much

For your boat I would think one gallon would do the job. You can get a very good answer by reading the literature for the paint you are going to use. Most will give you a formula for the size of boat and amount of paint needed.

One gallon should give you two coats.
