Repainting trolling motor head

Discussion in 'Boat Yard Basics' started by blondmonkey777, Apr 18, 2014.

  1. I have a few year old minn kota riptide, paint is flaking off the head like crazy and leaving little rust specs on my boat, what's some good long lasting paint? I honestly was thinking about sanding down and using flex seal white or bed liner in white because I need something that is tough because there are a lot of oysters in jax. Are there any better options?

    I believe they are powder coated and that is harder than any paint.

    If you need durability I think one of the DIY bedliner kits would be the key. Try to track down a quart size.

    MinnKota recommends that you use Appliance paint from Lowes. I'm gonna try it on mine and see what happens...can't look any worse than it does now.

    You'd think MinnKota would do a better job on their saltwater series motors!!!!!!
