    If you dont wanna buy a whole new boat they make flat spary paint for camo patterns that adheres to plastic. They sell it at lowes for around $8 a can. Brown, green, and black.

    I have painted a number of extruded polyethylene items with the fusion plastic spray paint. It does not work as well as claimed.

    You need to prep the surface very well with a degreaser to remove the mold release chemicals and get the surface down to raw poly. Takeing a acetone wet rag and giving it a quick wipe down is not good enough. it needs to be cleaned like you are doing dishes for your mom.
    Then you scratch sand it with 120 grit. Then wash all that dust off it.
    Then you use a autobody primer for prepping plastic body parts. I have not done this to my extruded polyethylene items yet. It is the best way to prep a gun stock for camo painting.
    Once the primer coat is cured then use flat spray paint.
    The paint bond will still be weak and will scratch off frequently. Do not bother painting the bottom of the hull. It may not last more than a few days before the bond is broken by the water.

    The easiest way to camo your boat is to sew up a cover made out of cordura. It will be cheaper in the long run and last longer.
    Rockywoods has a large selection of nylon camo fabrics.

    The other camo process is to build a skirt out of netting and then zip tie small bunches of dyed raffia grass to it. This is pricey and takes weeks to accomplish, but once you are done you have a boat that is now just a lump of grass out in the swamp. It is hard to shoot ducks that are landing on your head.
