Re: Painting aluminum

I've had good luck with this:
Moeller Zinc Chromate Primer
I'm only in fresh water but I repainted my pontoon aluminum and used this first and 5 years later it still looks good.

Like others said the kiwi grip white is BRIGHT in the sun light. I still have it in my OD18 and after ten years ...

Re: Nautolex marine vinyl flooring SUCKS!!

I'd say Kiwi Grip. I used it in my OD18, it's been on there for 10 years and is going strong. I use clorox bleach and a scrub brush and then a power washer to clean it. I have not had any lift on me. I'll get a picture for you and show you what 10 year old kiwi grip looks like.

Re: Cape Man's Dory

But the grey is just a tad grey, Enough to keep the glare at bay but not dark enough to make it hot. Hope that helps. I you want I can put some grey on some white and show...

Re: Cape Man's Dory

Looking good Capeman, I used Kiwi grip on the sole of my OD18 and I'm always barefoot and I really like it. Maybe I didn't go too agressive when I applied it :doh: but it holds up so well because of the people who get into my boat with work boots on. One thing I'll say, don't go White on the sole, I...
