8 posts in this topic

What kind of paint do you use to touch up your boat, and where do you get it?

I suggest getting in touch with Val at KVE surplus.
KVESURPLUS.COM
He's a site sponsor here. I seem to recall him mentioning he had a lot of OEM spray paint.
Good luck !

i just had the same problem you can call lund 218 385 2235 and tell them your year and class of boat and they will give you a ppg# that is a color code number that you can take to a paint mixer so he can match your paint

Need the same thing. Contacted Lund and they gave me the paint #. Contacted them again about if they carry any of the paint. They responded that did not carry any paint in spray cans and that I should go to a body shop with the numbers. I then wrote that I had my own sprayer and that all I needed was a pint or so. They responded that I had to come up there to pick it up (i.e. they wouldn't ship). You would think that UPS is going in and out of there day in and day out that they could ship some out to me for spending a good chunk of change on their product. Oh, well still trying to figure things out. Here is the person to get a hold of at lund to get your paint color #. Just give her the year and what color it is you need.

Wavewacker, go to the dealer you bought the boat from and see if they have thier oun drivers picking up the boats.If not ask when the next delivery is schedualed and see if you can talk with the driver, maybe he or she would pick it up for you?

Wavewacker,

I believe the issue with shipping you the paint directly is a environmental concern.... or something along those lines, for which UPS won't typically ship. When I used to work for a marine dealer UPS charged somewhere around 50 - 75 bucks to ship a 6" x 6" box of lund spray paint.. prety crazy. I'm surprised that they said they don't have spray cans... we used to have all sorts of different touch up paint in spray cans that we got directly from lund (shipped via UPS)....

Oh well I guess...

    • If you planning on doing any hand pulling at all then do not get the lodge she is a tank and would not fit in a short box. As long as your not 300+ lbs you'll be perfectly comfortable with 2 adults in the cabin. Also a cheap alternative to Hifax are a set of old downhill skis (normally $7-15 @ goodwill) I pull mine across parking lots all the time behind the wheeler and they hold up really well. An added bonus is if you cut them off at the end of the sled then they work great for loading and unloading the shack from your pickup box by yourself because the steel sides dig into the ground a bit keeping the bottom from sliding out.
    • tip to a couple good friends   Len,
      Thank you for the stream recommendation, Len! I love the layout of this stream. Fished it from 3pm until 6:30pm.  My brother threw panther 9s and I threw 6s. We scored a brookie/brown/bow trifecta.    
    • Nelson has been down in recent years in terms of Walleye fishing. Depends on what kind of water you like to fish. The flowage and Moose Lake are good if you like fishing really dark water. Grindstone and Lac Courte Oreilles, maybe even Round are also good walleye lakes, but those lakes have very clear water and will fish completely different than the dark water river impoundments in the area.
    • I think it would be an offensive and experience(post season) up grade. I all reality, we dont have the means to make the trade.  We are nearly out of money(cap space) and only have 11 players.  We need food cheap role players right now.   Only way would be to package Wiggins with future draft picks.  If the analysts are actually correct on how improved we will be, those draft pick wont carry a ton of value.
    •   Well not as many as up by the Emily-Outing area but a few.
    • Still on the fence between going with the cabin or lodge, my dad has a normal lodge and it has tons of room which is great but it also is somewhat heavy for 1 guy to load and pull it seems. I mostly fish with just 1 other person and maby 25% of the time by myself so that was why I was leaning to the cabin which also seemed to have plenty of room for 2 it seemed to me. Also from what I understand the cabin will fit in chevy crew cab box and the lodge won't? I have a 04 crew cab short box so one more incentive for the cabin if thats true.
    • Sounds perfect, thinking your guys reviews will seal the deal for me once I can see one in person again, a hyfax kit will also be on my list as I plan on pulling it behind my sportsman 570. Thanks for the review also AAmerican, it's early to be thinking ice fishing but I'm sure there's people out there like us that are a little anxious!
    • The Chippewa flowage would be a great place to start. I will be honest. Walleye are not what I have ever chosen to Target when I fish up there but the flowage is a great fishery.    Nelson lake would be another choice.
    • I have had 3 of the otter pro xt's, a cabin, lodge and resort. I still have the resort and recently purchased the cabin. I have not had many different brand portables but have fished in other brands buddies have. They are the nicest portables I have personally owned and until I try something I like more I wouldn't change from them at all. The resort is heavy and not something I like dragging far by hand especially loaded with gear and much snow on the lakes. But it has tons of room and I have fished 4 people in it before, a little tight but doable. The cabin I purchased for more hand pulling and an extra for if I have people along. They are very warm and I have fished in them down to -30 deg F. A regular buddy heater keeps them plenty warm, if it isn't to cold or the house is banked well its easily t-shirt weather inside. The resort needs a big buddy heater for colder days sometimes due to the larger size but isn't terrible with a regular. Overall very happy with them all and have been very durable. Also no dripping of water from the ceiling. Highly recommend a set of hyfax for the bottom. I had over 1000 miles pulling my old lodge and they hyfax held up great but I always pulled on snow and not across asphalt much at all.   Changes I have made to them: - added a battery box and inside LEDs  - used stainless screws on the band that hods the fabric to the tub only because I don't like the look of the rusted screws.     If you think you'll be purchasing one I would recommend stopping at a Gander Mountain if you have one near by and getting a set of hyfax since they are going out of business there is a good amount of ice gear. I found hyfax recently there for $15 a set.
