Default Paint info needed

What would be a good paint for the top of my boat and for the fiberglass floor of the boat?

if going all white PPG's single stage Concept is tough to beat and if you need a great color that goes with anything use ppg's 91050 its a very clean white thats not hars or overly bright.



I think i broke some kinda record this week with how many different threads i've suggested Concept in lol

It must be the winter solstice for boat projects, we're at the half way point and burning valuable winter work time fast . . . . .

Nahhh . . . . i suggest it all the time . . . . if they mess it up, a knowledgeable expert who can correct the carnage is only a phone call away . . . . Plus i know what they are using and how they got there lol.


Tell ya what as long as i have been on here and with all the tech questions i have fielded it amazes me the ambition of some of the do it yourselfers. Seen some pretty big projects get tackled quite successfully with a little direction and a lot of determination. I think its great.

The boat is an 89 Chris Craft 260 and I want to repaint a red area around the hatch on the nose. Is it possible to brush it on and still get a good result? Thanks Dave for the info.

unfortunatly no brushing a finish like that would not work to well. You could brush and tip Awl-Grip with good results, I've not done it but have seen some amazing results. I'm sure there must be a tutorial online or youtube or something.

I know the area on the 260 Scorp deck you are talking about, I miss my 'ol 260 one of the funnest boats i have ever had dollar for dollar.

why is ppg so great? Is there any other single stages you have used? DuPont? Just curious as to what makes it so great.

Also thinking of trying to painting my formula in the spring haha cant deal with the faded black anymore.
