Hey you guys, so some of you know, or may recall, that I've been kicking around the idea of painting my Grumman Sport Boat from the blue it is now to a camp for waterfowl hunting/float hunting etc. (Mostly ducks.) I've started various threads over the past year on this. With my mom's illness and her passing, I put it on the back burner, but, with the snow gone, it's go time.
I've decided to leave the primer and blue paint on the boat. My original plan was to strip it all to bare metal and start over from scratch, but the current paint sticks so well, and is in such great condition, I'm going to save myself that work and cost (mostly the cost) and sand the entire boat with 320 grit and just paint over it.
I'm looking at using the Hunter Specialties brand camo paint. http://www.hunterspec.com/content/permanent-camo-paint in Marsh Grass Tan. Has anyone used this here in Alaska and can give a comment on how well it has worked out? Does this stuff shoot easily in an automotive type paint sprayer (siphon cup)? How well did it stick to your boat? How long did the paint hold up before needing repainting or touch up? Does the Marsh Grass Tan color work well up here? Any ideas on how much are a rattle can covers compared to the qt & gal cans?
PS: this stuff is WAAYY cheaper than the NAPA automotive line paint ($438 for 1/2 gal compared to $65/gal for the HS paint at Cabela's)
