Paint for carbon fiber bowsprit

2872 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  mitiempo
When we bought our boat last winter the surveyor recommended that we paint our carbon fiber bowsprit as it was showing uv fading. Does anyone have any experience with painting carbon fiber for a marine environment? Specifically I need to know what primer and type of paint to use.

Thank you

It's carbon fibre and epoxy - any good two part paint like Interlux Perfection will work fine. Prime as per instructions for fibreglass.
