Re: Marine Paint vs Automotive

Thank you! This is exactly what I needed someone to say. Hard to spend 500$ on paint when that's all you paid for the boat. HA HA Looking forward to getting it on the water.

Fair Winds!

Re: Marine Paint vs Automotive

Thank you Donna, I went to the MacGregor owners website and a guy was parting out a Venture 17. He is going to mail the parts. You saved me a bunch of time and $$.. Really appreciate your help!
