  2. Custom Grab Bar Paint

    Boat Yard Basics
    Hey gents, being that I came from mostly kayak fishing and am now in a solo skiff (which I am loving btw) I do a lot of DIY to the boat to make it what I want. I have made a sort of make shift grab bar for the solo skiff out of 1" EMT and it works perfectly but now I want to make it look the...
  3. Painting Aluminum Hulls

    Boat Yard Basics
    Howdy, Could use some guidance as I have close to zero experience with DIY projects past building a shelf! I have a 1448 Aluminum Jon boat that I am converting into a flats skiff. I'd like to paint the inside white and the outside a seafoam green color. Other than sanding the existing paint...
  4. topside paint

    Boat Yard Basics
    Progress has been slow on my 14ft stumpknocker skiff rebuild. School, work and lack of funds has me working at crawl. But, as of now I have my stringer glassed, and bottom side of my marine plywood decking glassed with 7.5 oz biax and epoxy. Plan on “gluing” it to the stringers within the next...

    Boat Yard Basics
    Hello all, my first post here. I’ve been lurking around the site for a few years and figured I’d document a project I picked up a couple weeks ago. Maybe someone can learn from my mistakes and help me out if I run into problems. Excuse me if I’m a little long winded, I like details. I got fed...
  8. Bottom Paint for Skiff?

    Boat Yard Basics
    What recommendations do you have for bottom paint? Fiberglass hull. PO has painted the Skiff before and the bottom paint he applied is pealing. As you can see, the MFG color was blue. I would like to paint it and if there is a sealer in the paint that would help as well. Thanks,
  9. Stripping Paint off Gelcoat.....without damage.

    Boat Yard Basics
    Does anyone know the best paint stripper to remove a coat of Awlgrip that didn't kick/harden properly? I bought some of the Dad's Easy Spray stripper, it works awesome, only problem is I tested it on a small spot and it popped the gelcoat off. No big deal because the spot I tested was small...
