Painting Aluminum Hull Bottom
Hello all. New member here, and new owner of a 2000 10' Zodiac RIB with aluminum hull and 9.9HP outboard.
The hull bottom is in good shape except for a few small scrapes on the keel exposing the aluminum.
The hull bottom is mostly the factory white painted finish, but it looks like the previous owner did some touch-up along the keel. Not sure what he used, but possibly engine paint.
This will stay in the water in the marina (Lake Erie Islands) for the season. We use it to get around the marina and for short day trips into the bay.
I'm trying to decide whether to repaint the bottom with antifouling or the same paint that is on there (which I can't seem to find).
Any advice welcome!
