plastic(polyethelene) canoe or kayak...no.....paint will not stick..will start coming off soon....krylon fusion paint may wk on new plastic canoes but dont know......fibergalss is easier to paint.....aluminum prime with zinzer 123 then paint.....
it's a fiberglass canoe , thanks for the replies guys . i already started sanding it . i think i'm going with primer next , then after that , a black canoe with a fighter jet front shark theme sounds just about right for me .
yeah ghost , i liked it that plain camo color too , but i wanted to get a new boat for the 2010 season and my wife wouldn't let me , however she said i could trick my canoe out any way i wanted and maybe next year i can get a yak . i've already sanded and primered it , next comes the black ! i got a new fishfinder coming and i'm in the process of making a dash mount for the canoe .
so , here's a look at what I'm kinda going for on my canoe paintjob . better pics will come when i'm done . it looks kinda sloppy still , but i'm def gonna clean it up . i'm also putting an anchor pulley on it .
just remeber a snazy paint job ain't gonna make those fish jump in the boat out there at beaver dam and you might want to put some mile's on it after the paint is done to get the smell off it just some food for thought fish smell things and krylon dust will be all over it looking forward to the 27th
thanks froggy , i thought about the smell factor , i will def take it out for a couple of runs before the tourny . so , here's a look at my homemade canoe dashmount i made this week . it will hold my fishfinder , my transducer sidemount , my clete for the anchor .
