advice on repainting my cataraft

Discussion in 'Watercraft' started by Coonhound Jed, Mar 28, 2010.

  1. i have a 13' scadden bladderless mckenzie drifter that is fire engine red. i would like to repaint it, but i am not sure what paint to use. the toons will be lightly folded when not in use so i want a paint that will stick and not chip or peel away. also i am not sure about the toon material, i dont want to put a paint on that will eat or degrade the material. any ideas on types of paint or ways (i.e. airbrush) etc. would be very appreciated
  2. Jed, you want to paint the frame or the bladderless toons?
  3. sound like he wants to paint the toons. I would think the only thing you could do is stain them a darker color. Even plastic paints will crack just from inflation/deflation.

    Try contacting the manufacturer and see what they recommend.
  4. Contact Maravia and ask them what to use. There is a paint to use on them. I'm not 100% sure what it's called. But they do have a urethane type paint designed to paint pontoons. BUT, you literally won't be painting them, you'll be coating them. Maravia does some awesome stuff with paint schemes (flames and such). They use an overcoat to do the second color.
  5. try SEM Products Classic Coat at

    Key to adhesion is clean clean clean.
    Clean it with Alcohol sereral times, wear latex gloves to not get oil from you hands on toons
  6. Sorry SEM products Classic Coat is under the Automotive section
