18' aluminum starcraft primer suggestions

2 posts in this topic

I have my 1974 StarCraft supersport 18 flipped and stripped. I am looking for primer suggestions before moving forward. It is trailer kept and fresh water use. I almost proceeded with rattle can primer, then thought about the work I had into it at this point. I want it to last a long time.

Once it is sanded bright and cleaned, you can use Totalboat Aluminum Etch wash, brush on let sit for 5 minutes and hose off with water.  Let that dry then apply 2 to 3 coats of TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Topside Paint.  If there aren't any colors in that paint that you like, you could apply a coat or two of TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Barrier Coat Primer, and then 2 to 3 thin coats of a topside paint like Totalboat Wet Edge if the boat doesn't stay in the water more than a day or two.  If it is, then use a bottom paint below the waterline.
