General Painting thread (P26)
« on: July 12, 2018, 12:29:14 PM »
I recently acquired a Pearson P26. I plan on dry docking the boat, taking it apart and revamping it, including paint. I am wondering what type of paint to use, how many gallons, any special conditions or circumstances, and just any overall advice for painting and sanding both the interior and exterior.

I plan on putting faux teak along the deck, cockpit, and am looking for recommendations for interior flooring.

As far as painting is concerned its really the prep that's important. i'm currently re-doing my topsides now. as for paint selection i went with total boat products, @part epoxy primer, and wet edge paint (single part). i plan on rolling it.  There are many paint systems, and products do your own research.
good luck
