Getting ready to repaint my 1448 john boat. What type of paint is recommended and where could I get it? About 4 years ago I went to the farm store and bought a gallon of enamel paint, it did not hold up to water very well. Also do I NEED to sandblast down to the metal or can I just pressure wash all the flaking paint off and paint over the top? And lastly is it better to spray with a gun or can I just use a brush? The boat does not need to look "pretty" as it is a redneck river john, I just want it re-coated. Thanks for any tips or suggestions.
