Marine Painting is meant to correct old gelcoat, paint, or just change the color to the owners specifications. Depending on the current finish of your boat or yacht, determines how the boat should be prepped. 99% of the time, we are going to use Awlgrip paint, specifically, Awlgrip Awlcraft 2000, is a very reliable paint that can be buffed, and lasts for years and years.
If the boat has a gelcoat finish, to prep this surface, it will have to be sanded, faired, and the gelcoat will have to be removed altogether. Awlgrip has to be sprayed in a contained area with proper ventilation. This is not a paint that you can just apply outside, there are too many contaminants that could ruin the finish! This is why we ask that you call ahead so we can arrange to move your boat to a paint station. Depending on the size, you may have to use a boatyard, or if the boat is trailerable, you can pull it to us!
As you can imagine, the scope of marine painting jobs vary widely, so please give us a call to discuss your boat.
