I am considering painting my old Polarcraft aluminum jon boat and use a similar color as it is now. Last year I used "Gluvit" on the bottom and lower sides and it did a great job of sealing the boat. has anyone painted a boat like this? any suggestions or opinions? Thanks.

Since it is already painted you can paint right over the old paint. If it was bare aluminum you would need to use a zink chromate primer.

Just make sure the old paint is not peeling and you should be OK.

BTW I have done it on numerous tin boats.

Just sold my polarkraft 18 ft duck boat. Painted it twice. Use parker boat paint. Tough stuff. Awesome paint. You can find it at cabelas. Or do a google search for it. You can paint right over the old paint.
Good luck

Smitty, thanks for that tip. I did some research on Parker's paint and that's the one I'll use.
