Ali plate paint

 Hello

I have started sanding back and filling coroded areas on my boat.

I would like paint the whole boat now. I don't want to spray it as it's not worth the time and effort to do so. I want to do it with a foam roller and a tipping brush. (Good enough for me)

 

Just want to know if anyone can recommend a paint that will be suitable for this. Cost is not an issue. 

 

Thanks

 You will need to prime no matter what you do or how you apply, Robayne in Welshpool will certainly have the right products for you.

per above, etch prime it. My father has a 60 foot aluminium boat launched in 1988 and the etch primer is still in perfect condition. No corrosion.

 went with the norglass products, yep got a primer too

enamel based seems to be the go for rolling and tipping, the other option was a 2 pack epoxy base (almost double the cost)

 

might post a photo once im done if i can figure it out how to
