    That's a pretty vague question, 21 tunnel, v-bottom, how old is the boat?

    If it's an older v-bottom cruiser figure a minimum of 1300# I have a 78, 20' ss with 4 stringers and it's a pig, prolly 1300# bare.

    that depends on how long you want it to last, and how nice of a finish you want. What color? You can go el cheapo with basic rustoleum or upgrade to more than a $1000.00 for materials. Are you going to paint it yourself, spray, brush and roll? Many questions to ask to assist you in your goal.

    yes you can absolutely brush and roll it. there are additives that you can use to aid in the flow and open coat characteristics of some basic enamels. by the way you don't have to spend a grand on materials I was just giving you a range from basic to top self. quality surface preparation is fundamental to ALL paint work. The Harbor freight 2qt. hvlp paint system runs about $50 and is a decent pressure pot system. Mixture ratio and air pressure will effecct the paint finish the most. Do you have a good water separator and air filter system? There are some good industrial enamels out there that will provide good coverage, hyde, impact resistance and smooth finish. Maximus by ellis paint co. is a pretty good product. It's a two component product that runs around a 100.00/ mixed gal. They also have fleet finishes too. Most of your major paint mfg. have several quality levels of products to fit diff. needs. A good quality primer is essential for rust protection, adhesion/impact resistance (think road gravel etc) and build for sand-abilty for top coat adhesion. there are many different grades of product out there it all depends on what your desire is for longevity and how much work your willing to do to create the desired result. It's your toy it's your choice.

    No I have not used that product nor am I familiar with it. Catchy name tho. Let's see them prove it. Under the proper conditions practically any paint system could make that claim. Good luck with your project.

    I am not familiar with zero rust....but if its anything like por15(a rust specialty paint) its not an option. Por15 LOVES rust....but it will peel right off virgin clean rust free metal like cellophane . I assume clean glass would have similar results.....dunno though.

    99 percent of the work is in the prep.......sprayin is the fun part.
