Fleet Farm, used it for my old lund. Fleet Farm Brand Exterior paint in red, may be called tractor paint or something like that. I primed the outside then 2 coats borrowed a friend's air painter. Inside I scraped off loose then painted over in a white, same type of paint. Was good enough for me, with assorted items needed, tape, scraper, wire brush I think I spent under $40, but that was 10 years ago and the whole could use another overhaul

The oil based "marine" paint at Ace is incredible stuff. Mad my pontoon sides look like new, and while I used blue, I bet their red is pretty close to lund red. It looks great after 5 years. I sprayed it on with air compressor.

Just bring it over to the Crestliner plant in Little Falls and have it painted to look like a Crestliner. Thats what my father-in-law did. gringringrin

I painted one a few years back. Prep is the big thing. Scrap and wire brush all the loose stuff off then wash with miradic acid. My paint job is ten years old.

I just re-painted a Lund rowboat this spring. I was able to get fairly close to "Lund Red" using FF branded spray paint! Not a big fan of spray paint for finish quality, but for an old rowboat, I figured I'd give it a shot. It actually turned out surprisingly good! I think 3 cans cost me $12....plus about 2 hours of sanding and taping....not a bad evening's work........ The old paint was scratched up and a little faded, but solidly adhered to the aluminum. I didn't have any bare metal to worry about priming by the time I got done sanding, I just had to rough up the existing coat with a fine grit on my palm sander..

THANKS FOR THE INFO!!!

ANOTHER ? WHAT KIND OF PRIMER DO I USE ON THE ALUMINUM????

I DID REDO SOME ALUMINUM WHEELS ON MY CAR AND USED DUPLICOLOR BRAND SELF ETCHING PRIMER AND THEN USED THEIR WHEEL PAINT, THEY STILL LOOK GOOD AFTER ONE MN WINTER.

SO I WAS THINKING I WOULD USE THAT PRIMER ON THE ALUMINUM AND JUST TOP COAT WITH SOMETHING ELSE.....

ratherbe, I repainted the green interior of my old S-14 several years ago. I 'washed' it with lacquer thinner and painted it with spray cans of Textured Auto Trunk paint from the auto parts store. As I recall, it took ~5 cans to do the area I wanted done. It's available in a tan or medium grey, I went with the tan so the interior didn't heat up so much from the sun. The nice part is it's slip resistant. Phred52

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!

    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
