How much paint is needed for FL12?

Post by m_montalvo » Mon Mar 08, 2010 7:09 pm

Hey everyone! I'm building the FL12, and was wondering if anyone knew how much paint I would need. My plan is to paint the hull one color and the interior/deck another. Any suggestions?

My FL14 took about 3/4 gallon inside and out. Depends on how many coats. I used red on the outside and it took the full 1/2 gallon, light blue on the inside took a little more than a quart. All paint was Brightsides. Rick

You should be able to paint that boat with a gallon of paint. 2 qts inside and 2 qts outside since you are using two colors. You will have PLENTY of paint leftover for touch up....
