Been absent from The South for the last 6 weeks or so..Been putting a face lift on my boat...New rails and paint and more work than I thought...Almost ready to go though...

Not sure if I am going though...With the water this low I might scratch the paint.:shock:

If you see me wave..;)

Thats pretty slick! i wouldn't ever take it out lol. once you scratch it a few times it won't hurt so much when you do.

Fortunately, I just recently restored and treated my rails so they're good for a while now, but wow it was a pain in the arse lol. Is your boat glass?

Glass boat..Replacing the rails is not that bad(now that I have done it once LOL).. It was all the scraping the old paint off that was a pain.After that I went to Industrial Finishes on West First and talked to them about paint..Those boys were very helpful and matched me up with the right paint for the job..

I used a top end automotive paint...Kinda expensive but worth it I think..

Good luck with yours...

How much did you spend on paint, if you don't mind me asking?

2 quarts of paint,hardener and thinner was $122.00...They did have cheaper alternatives,but after all that work I went with the good stuff..

Stop in and talk with them...They are knowledgable and helpful...I chatted with them a couple times before I made up my mind..

That's not bad at all, it's better than using the cheap stuff, and it turning out not awesome, and then not lasting. Too much work to skimp on it lol. Where are they located? I live in Eugene, but prefer fishin' more northerly, too damn crowded on the Mac and I don't like the Willamette lol.

Ohhhhhh, I know where that's at :) Great info, I will check them out. I might paint it this winter, but probably not gonna happen until next spring since I don't have a heated garage to do it in, and, winter is my favorite fishin'...so it'll be in heavy use, and i'm not gonna want it out of comission. No time to do it this summer 'cause I'm just too busy. SOMEDAY. I'll pick your brain before I do it
