I recently purchased a Gheenoe 15'4" highsider.  I plan to sand down the hull fix any damage and repaint.  I am curious to know about how much paint it would take using the roll and tip method.  The amount of paint used will effect the quality paint I will be using so having a ruff estimate before hand sure would help.

I believe I was able to coat the whole outside of my highsider twice in brightside with just one qt. Thinned a little of course and properly primed.

I'd say a quart should do the trick.

firecat1981,
What did you thin it down for. Was this for purposes of spraying or did you roll it.

you have to thin it to do the roll and tip. If you don't follow the recomendations you might end up with brush strokes and such. Plus it goes further.

Make sure you get the brushing thinner. They make spraying thinner and brushing thinner.
