For the first painting job on the home-built dory, I used some very nice $60 a quart boat paint. Flowed on really wall and had a great shine. Only trouble way, at the end of a very muddy Grand Canyon trip, it needed another coat of paint. Now, I paint the GEM every year with $9-a-quart Rustoleum oil based paint. The boat looks GREAT at the put-in, and at the take-out, needs another coat of paint! Have fun Curtis!!

That is what l used also. Rustolem oil base. I mixed one quart of green wild three quarts of blue to get a better teal. This boat has been 4 different colors in two weeks.

I could not have done this without help from my support team on and off the river. They know who they are, Thanks again.
