As you might have read I just received a fishing boat that is aluminum.

So after I fix the rivets and leaks, how do i paint it?

The person before me painted it brown but it is starting to come off and i want to make it look new again. How do i take the paint off with out recking the aluminum? What kind of paint do i need? Any finishes that i may need? What kind of price am i looking at to do all of this? THANKS!!

Painting should be easy. There is no need to sand all of the old paint off as long as its still adhering to the boat. Primer and paint.
