painting an old row boat
(Evansville, Indiana USA)
I pulled an old two-person row boat from the crawl space of a cabin.
Floor was rotted but sides and insides are in good shape.
I've taken off the old floor and bought a sheet of marine-grade plywood to replace it.
I've sanded down the rough spots on the sides and insides.
Now I'm ready to paint, BUT, there are no paint stores in my city that carry marine paint.
I need advice on:
(1) do I need a primer, and if so, what kind?
(2) what kind/brand of paint is best?
(3) Should I use different materials for the bottom and sides versus the inside?
Any advice will be appreciated!
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
