    Painting Inside of GPR Hull!?!

    I want to paint the inside of my hull but I need to know what I should do to prep it and what kind of paint to use.

    I assume just scrub it with some degreaser and make sure it's nice and dry.

    Light sanding to give the paint a better chance of sticking?!

    Primer?!

    Could I just use rattle can spray paint? If so what kind?

    Sorry for all the questions..I just don't want to screw it up!

    Thanks a lot!

    -Jon

    Irish,i heard its a complete mess when you paint inside the hull.Paint peels of and in time will look bad.This is just info that was given to me.There might be a special kind of paint to use though.Good luck.
