Kirby's Marine Paint
Hull and Deck

Directions:

On New and Old work alike, surface should be dry, clean, and free from loose scale. Also the weather should be dry to get maximum finish and gloss.

DO NOT THIN PAINT UNLESS NECESSARY, or for a first coat on new wood, stir well with a bringing-to-the-top motion or better still, all paints should be "boxed" into a larger container - i.e., (pouring back and forth). Use less than 1/2 pint paint thinner per gallon.

BRUSH OUT EACH COAT WELL giving final coat the maximum "flow" possible. Guard against "heavy" coats. Remove excessive coats of old paint at intervals for the good of your boat and your final paint job. The number of coats each season depends on your own judgement.

Good quality

I've been using this paint on my 12 1/2 since I restored her in 2014. I use the semi-gloss white. I find that on occasion I can get away with seasonal touch ups instead of painting the entire hull, because with the semi-gloss the new paint blends in well with the old paint when you Scothbrite around the area. I'll probably keep using this until an adequate waterbased product comes out.

Met my expectations

Having never rolled and tipped marine paint I followed the directions and applied 2 coats to my 1994 Lund Alaskan. Beautiful color and applied easily. Called main number with an application question and a very nice gentleman answered all my questions and provided additional tips. Now that's service.

Not durable enough

1

Before buying this stuff for my wooden-canoe projects, I've read so many good reviews here and on canoe forum, that purchased 1 color from Jamestown and 2 colors from Kirby directly. What I can say - it's not durable at all. I can leave a scratch even with my fingernail (!). I have experience with Brightside and it seems that Kirby is good only for museum projects due to their oldschool colors. I'm very dissapointed. Will never buy their stuff again.

my favorite topside paint for carvel planked boats

5

good flexibility, I use the semi-gloss white and it cleans very easily when scrubbed along the waterline. I don't have to worry about the scrubbing messing up the gloss. Dries in two days in northeast humidity.

Used over canoe canvas filler. Dries well with very little odor-very user friendly. Great service from Jamestown Distributors with quick delivery.

this is great paint..

This is great paint, I used in the preservation of a 1922 Lyman 13' Ideal row boat. #5 Grey in the bilge and semi-gloss white on the topsides, as per original color scheme.The authentic semi-gloss finish and even paint flow helped the boat win a first in class at Clayton 2009 Antique Boat Show. Judges were pleased that a paint was used that was available when the little Lyman was built. You can not go wrong with this product.

Great Canoe Paint

5

I'm about to paint my seventh wood/canvas canoe using Kirby's paint. Have used other brands and find this is a superior marine enamal. Just mix a small amount of penetrol to smooth out the flow and it goes on with ease.I use a small (3") roller and apply about 2x3 feet square then smooth with good foam brushes. As in other top of the line marine paints this is not a cheap paint but well worth the expense. No priming necessary.
