    Default lacquer paint??

    Looking for a super cheap paint job to freshen my (cheap!) boat this winter. Summit has the $20/gallon lacquer paint that is supposed to lay down as nice/nicer than the old school lacquer without the ill aspects. The old corvettes seem to hold up with lacquer over fiberglass without too much issue. How about on a boat? Thoughts? seems alot more forgiving than the base-clear systems, and probably as durable I imagine. re-gel is out of the question due to $$$ and the boat not being worth it.
    Thoughts?

    when the stuff starts lifting or flaking, you will wish there was an easy way to get it all off.......

    good point on the flaking. I forgot to mention some previous owner fogged clearcoat over the (faded) original gel. Its flaking off all over the place. Nice.
    So no matter what I do it will end up well sanded for whatever gets painted on.

    You might even want to talk with a local bodyshop and see if you can work a deal with just spraying the boat, we'll get you set up on prep! thats the toughest part, but when that is all handled, the painter should be able to handle it pretty reasonably! just a thought!

    I used Dupont Imron on the bottom of my boat and it worked really good, no flaking or peeling. Its not that expensive either, and it sprays nice.
