The wife says that it's time to clean up the boat or get it gone. I was wondering if the was anyone that has painted a metal boat before. Do you have to do anything with the aluminum first, or do you just start painting. The existing paint is starting to flake off pretty bad in some spots. This flaking is leaving some of shiny aluminum exposed. I hoped to seal the rivets with some fiberglass resin or somthing along those lines. Then paint is there a brand out there that is better than the others? No better place to ask for info than Ifish thanks in advance.
