Default 25 Seavee New Paint

Decided to get my 25 Seavee repainted.

Used Imron paint for the sides and vivid for the bottom. Also put on a new white rubrail. Waiting for the insert for the rubrail and a few stainless fittings to come in to finish up. Before and after pictures below.

Looks great! I'm thinking about doing mine over the winter and have a question about your bottom paint. Did you strip the old black completely off or paint the new over the old? I want to do mine but dread stripping every bit of the old off.

Looks great, I am wanting to paint the top sides of my boat this fall/winter.

Did you spray or brush/roll

How much paint did it take and how many coats





Just attempting to get ideas before I paint mine

It was sanded pretty good but not completely to where the whole bottom was white. I repainted it before when it was black using black and I did not do any sanding. It turned out fine.

This was sprayed on and it took 3 coats. I had a guy I know do it.

Originally the boat had faded green gelcoat. I rolled and tipped the yellow you see in the picture. I had never attempted anything like this before and did not find it difficult but it turned out nothing like the new spray job. Not nearly as shiny but I didn't relly know what I was doing. I did not prep quite well enough when I did it and had some issues with the paint coming off along the bottom edges. I have seen some roll and tip jobs by professionals that look very good.

He was being sarcastic as the boat looks like a completely different one. Was a compliment. Nice paint job.

It does look like a different boat. Any interior or cockpit paint improvements?

The inside was repainted about 4 years ago. But now since the outside looks so new I will have the inside done in the near future.

Wow, looks like new! Love the white / blue combo. Did you have it sprayed in the yard or did you bring it somewhere?

MORE PICS PLEASE (we like pics),

It is actually Ice Blue and was sprayed right where it sits on the guys lot in the picture. The whole area was enclosed with plastic for painting.

I loved my 25 seavee. How does the boat handle the weight of the 250 4 stroke?

When I first decided to repower it I was a little concerned but I had seen some 25's previously with twins. It really is a perfect fit. The boat sits really level and rides well. It tops out at 48-49 MPH getting about 2 MPG. Crusie is about 30 MPH getting 3 MPG.
