I'd go with the black. Even though for tubes on a RIB I prefer battle gun grey

What paint did you use? I've one a little 3m that I'm pondering on painting at the moment. Did one once before and it didn't look that great.

yes same boat, yes i sprayed it, it's a tender for a thames barge so black is the colour, the paint is a bastard, you can't strir it, it goes off in the tin without opening it, it goes off in the gun, and it's got no shelf life, i've done a couple of bits now and have had good results, i did a LOCOG protector and that's what started me off, if it stays on the boat half as good as my hands it will last a life time

just seen the other post, the paint came from marine ware in southampton, it's the only place in the country you can get it, be warned though, unless you're good with a spray gun don't attempt it, if you're going to have a go ask for Tony and tell him biff sent you i might get my stuff a bit cheaper

Biff, how much would you charge to do a 3m boat? (PVC tubes).

(Is that Alan's boat?)

Can let us know what paint it was? I looked at their webpage and it lists many manufacturers.

Was it for hypalon or pvc?

Many thanks

it will do both pvc and hypalon, it's called hypershield, the problem you will have is once it's mixed it doesn't travel well, by the time it get to wales it will be solid

The Hypershield is great stuff but to get a finish like Biffer has achieved needs practice and a good spray gun, really a job for someone who knows the product and how to apply. so either get Biffer to do the job or we do a Flexible paint that can be sprayed rolled or brushed on, it does not give a glossy finish like Hypershield but gives a good mat finish similar to the original Hyperlon / pvc finish even when applied using a foam roller. It also has a long pot life.

Thank you both for advice.
I'm not bad with a spray gun and per chance my neighbour owns a industrial and domestic spray coating company so I can access better equipment if needed. To be honest I want to do this myself just for own satisfaction.

Its a project and I'm hoping to add some nice new features to a rib. watch this space

I am HD recording what I do and am hoping to upload it at some stage. theres loads of great advice here but my only gripe is the threads get buffered out with chit chat on next doors cat and how to put air in a car tyre etc, so I'm hoping to upload in decent batches a project so others can benefit from reading through a project quickly, if that makes sense.

Anyhow back to coating.

Hypershield, is it flexible? and is it available in matt? to be honest as soon as I read gloss finish it put me off, dont want it to look like a plastic boat.

Re:ribshop paint?
Now I know this is like asking the executioner will it hurt, answer no it wont hurt at all,,,,,,,but he omits to tell you your dead aferward

I have read and seen some horrible paint jobs, flaking, patchy, etc etc.

yes on day one will look nice and new done with a little skill and a good roller, but! what is it like a year later with 100hrs plus at sea? what it like washing down with a jet wash?

Hope that all makes sense?

Do you mean America cup racing yachts? or is there an America cup RIBS? i.e are they painting on hypalon?

Can you clarify for me also, HYPALON is neoprene rubber yes?
