Matte black or sateen black q/a
« on: January 23, 2014, 06:22:07 pm »
I was debating on painting my boat matte or sateen black but was scared off by the paint supplier cause he said it was a nite mare to keep clean and there's no fixing  nicks dings or scratches and as far as care for it there's no waxing or buffing  I'm not a painter so don't no what's true  but if any of you no or have a black boat I would love to here your info

Everything he told you was true. The boat I gave to brad I had sprayed the sides Hot Rod Black which is like a matt/semi gloss black and it seemed to hold up realllly good. Cleans real easy and is CHEAP !

You planning on doing the whole top? Yes im sure it will get hott especially if your down at the river!! 120 degrees with black paint can get tricky.. Thats why I only did my sides and I used a charcoal grey on top. Probably didnt help much hahaah still was really hott. Anything in 120 degrees will get hott though

Was going to do the whole boat top sides bottom in gloss black with matte or sateen black stripes down the sides.  But now I think I'm going all white

its hot....like give you blisters on your ass hot. its no joke.

I take my race boat (flat black) to the river every once n awhile. forget standing on it. forget even sitting on it. it will radiate heat through your shorts like a stove burner.

and yes, its very porous....it sucks up any oil and stains very easily. Also it scratches very easily.

I know this above statement because one day the cover blew off the boat. The Ex's dog clawed its way up onto it....walked around in the bildge (which had oil in it) and then tracked it all over the bow. ruined it.

I'll never paint another boat this color. yes, it looks cool, but its no practical in any sense.

White is the way to go, just did mine last year.  I sprayed mine right in my driveway, first time ever painting anything and it didn't come out half bad after a good color sand and buff.

Yes and dish soap too. Claw marks are still there and the paw prints are there but very faint.

River life and others who have painted their boats....
What paint did you use? Brand, two stage or single? Did you sand down to the fiberglass? Just looking for any advice
Thanks

I used a two stage base/clear and no not down to glass all you need to do is get it flat/smooth then use whatever the recommended build/primer for the brand/type of paint you go with, prime it then sand down the primer flat/smooth then make sure it's all cured to appropriate time and then make sure you do a amazing prep with a surface prep'r right before you want to start laying down your base coat, also make sure you have enough paint and additives also enough clear to get it all done in one shot, just makes it easier to not have to stop/start  again this is just my opinion, this was my first major paint job I'm sure some pro's will chime in with some good advice/products

They do make a clear top coat that sets up matte finish. It would seal it up fine but I don't think you'd be happy all black.

i would be FURIOUS if my neighbor sprayed paint in the open... its unpossible to not get overspray on everything.  i painted a computer case once in the back yard and the overspray still made its way onto my dads tbird in the front driveway and i spent all weekend waxing it off by hand.  hell even doing a quick rattle can job on stuff theres a fine mist on the surrounding area.

2 stage is a lil harder because the clear will magnify any and all imperfections on the base. Single stage is a lil more forgiving because it's thicker and tends to fill in minor flaws such as small scratches or chips.

I guess you're entitled to your opinion and thankful that we are not neighbors, but I did paint and clear my entire boat in the drive way and got nothing on my truck, or any of the neighbors cars,homes,windows etc. you just have to pick the right morning *NO WIND* and using a HVLP gun actually doesn't have a very powerful spray given the "LP" Low Pressure.
