733 gets a new SKIN! and some touch up work.

We cleaned up, patched and painted this 733 Hurricane this week to add to our fleet.

Ryan, a couple of questions:

1) What paint did you use? Looks really good.

2) Fleet? What do you do, anyway?

we are a commercial towing, recovery and salvage company.

hurricane paint

Ryan- How has the durability been for that paint on the tubesets that you have done? If I am not mistaken you have redone a few tubesets with that paint over the past year or two? Any bonding or wear issues with it?

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks Chris

Good

The paint is great! you really need to spend a lot of time and make sure you prep. If you do not properly clean the material you will get some bad bonding. I am very happy with the paint. I have done 3 boats so far a 640 & 733 Hurricane and a 730 Willard all are great! I have 16 months on my first one and over 1300hrs on water and no complaints.

Does the paint provide any sealing of pinhole leaks in the tubes? Might be easier than trying to pour sealant into the tubes and distribute it evenly.
