    My ALUMINUM hull is almost ready to paint. I have driven myself insane searching through all the different forums and websites. I've had enough. Can somebody please help me. Here is what I know so far.

    *Down to bare metal..I will use self etching primer
    *1 gallon will be more than enough of ??????? paint.

    I want a flat black or satin finish. I don't want all the inperfections to show.

    Boat will be used in salt water, cleaned and stored in my garage. Somebody please help me. Shoot me a link or something.

    Why black? That's going to make that hull searing hot.
    Why not a marsh camo to match the jax backwaters?

                                          :-?

    Don't over think this, it's an aluminum boat, fishing jax.
    That means oysters and shell scraping the hull every trip.
    I see lots of touch-up work in your future... ;)

    I'm carpeting the inside so I don't have to worry about the heat too much.

    Oh and yes I agree with the touch up paint part. Not too worried about it though.
