painted hull

Posted by terry lob on Sep 28, 2004

I originally wanted a bright finish boat but I am starting to look down the road @ maintaining the boat because I plan to use the boat not make it a museum piece. I think I will paint the sides and bottom with a bright top. My next question is can I use the interlux paint directly over the resin or do I need a primer first, next how much paint is required to do a single ch17? If I have any left over will this stuff stay good and for how long?
