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!
