Painting tubes

I know you can get Hypalon and PVC paints to paint your tubes...


But whats the effect like? does it look terrible and brush strokey or does it look ok (assuming you do it by hand on your boat that is) i'm thinking of slightly changing the colour scheme of my new boat over the weekend. inbetween other things it needs, such as a twist throttle fitting to the engine and a floor fitted...

It can look great - I have done it very successfuly. Make sure you prepare the surface well, lots of masking tape and use a small gloss roller.

its actually for a SIB (dont hurt me with your hulls )

would constant deflation/inflation rolling up etc damage the paint?

or will it survive that too.

its a PVC (i think) boat certainly not hypalon (i may have said IIRC)

Welcome to the forum.

Why do you want to change the colour scheme? What is it - green hull and purple tubes???

Grey and blue sounds fine. How badly faded is it - it just looks a bit dirty in the piccie! Would a few strategically placed wear patches and a good clean not be enough to smarten it up?

good clean up, new valves and a touch of paint would suffice

its not got any wear on it as far as i can tell. it only looses air from the valves. but i do need to repair places such as the bits holding the airkeel in place the bow line bit on the bow, the lifelines on the outside and thats it for the boat. (it keeps growing really)

I thought maybe you could use wear patches instead of paint. I don't know but would think there is a danger of paint peeling off when it's rolled up, as you mentioned earlier?

Good luck with it and please post some piccies and progress reports.

i could do but the problem there is it would make the floor and the spray canopy more rigid. and less rollable
