    Default A guy wants his boat painted

    Would I have to use gel coat on the hull, or could I use regular urethane paints.
    Thanks for any tips

    If the boat sees a lot of time in the water I would go to a marine supply and get the paint materials that are designed for that job. I don't think you would need to use gel coat but marine paint is designed to take a lot of water and UV abuse. If your just talking about painting above the gunnel then urethane would work fine as long as the surface is prepped properly.
