Question

My aluminum boat has a factory green finish over all the boat. I want to paint the inside white to reduce heat. What if anything needs to be done to prepar the finish for paint. Thanks Wes

If the green is in good condition, you would clean it well, light sand with 220 grit, clean again and apply a couple coats of a paint like TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Topside Paint https://www.jamestowndistributors.com/userportal/show_product.do?pid=336274&familyName=TotalBoat+Aluminum+Boat+Topside+Paint

I used this on bare aluminum.  In my case I took a extended motor bracket, carried it down to the bare metal, used the etch wash, then immediately used a quality aluminum primer, and e the primer was tacky applied the final coat of aluminum paint.  This may be a little tough job for the entire inside of the boat. May want to refer to a few blogs to get any other suggestions.  If it was me, might use an anti-slip coating that does not absorb heat and keep from making it  any slicker.

Answer

The green could be paint but is most likely some kind of anodized finish which is baked on. The acid wash is for bare metal prep, An epoxy primer would be more appropriate. Or you could sand it off then acid wash. You could also use an etching primer on any bare spots then epoxy primer then some white polyurethane paint non skid added to it or a premixed white nonskid. Hope that helps

What is the coverage of a quart. I have a 14' V-Hull Sea Nymph that I plan to clean for painting inside and outside.

Yield is a tough number to gauge with this product. It is dependent on the condition of the boat and how much of the material falls to the ground as waste while you are cleaning it. A quart should be fine to do the whole boat I would think.

Depending on how you apply it. If you use a cloth and rubber glove a qt would probably do one side depending on how careful you are. I would get 3 qts for your job or a gal if the price is better. Pk

Answer

I can't exactly remember the coverage, I did a 10 foot jon boat and used about 2 quarts. If I remember correctly that was 2 applications on the outside only. 1 gallon should be enough for a 14 foot inside and out.
