    Default Aluminum Pontoons

    This will only be used in fresh water and will be on a trailer unless fishing, I have used an acid to clean the aluminum so they are nice and clean, I am not using a bottom paint as it is not required for fresh water. I am going to attempt to spay a blue metallic enamel that I have had for a few years but do I need to use a primer?

    I would scuff it to give the metal a little tooth, spray it with a good epoxy primer and apply the paint within the recoat window of the primer.

    Thank you Len,
    I was hoping to not have to use a primer but so it must be.
