I've decided to go with a green on the outside and a butterscotch type color on the inside. I'm fairly decent with a roller and a brush, but that fine finish work is what kills me. Like my dad said one time - did you paint it or just get paint on it? LOL. I do not have capability to spray and have read/watched/researched rolling and tipping, just not sure I have the skills to do it right. Any tips on painting?

I would try'n practice on scrap pieces till you get comfortable with the technique. I've never rolled and tipped so I can't help ya there. Boat is coming along nice. Looking forward to some in the water pics.

Boat is coming out great.

Rolling and tipping is pretty simple. Look at the Interlux line of paints. Check out my rebuild thread. I went with VC Performance Epoxy for the bottom. I used a 3/8" nap roller and I rolled on 3 coats. I really liked the paint and it is a really hard paint, like gelcoat when dry.

Then Perfection for the black hull sides which is an awesome paint, I rolled it on with a foam roller (Red Tree 4"). I thinned it at 10-12% (very hot down here) and it leveled out perfectly, no tipping required. I would paint a 2-3ft section and then go back over the area with the same roller but just applying light pressure to blend the seams. Work in small batches if you have to thin it. The reducer will start to evaporate from the paint tray and the paint won't go on as smooth. I did the first coat by mixing up one batch and trying to do both sides and the transom at once. Once I got to the second side, the paint wasn't leveling out as nice and I had to tip it with the brush which left slight brush marks. Sanded them out and then the next coat I worked in sections and it went on smooth.

For the inside of the boat I went with brightside in white. I applied it right from the can, no thinners. I used the cheap 4-6" hot dog foam rollers from Home Depot. This paint went on smooth, and for the price I was happy. I did the nonskid with this paint as well. I used Intergrip mixed into the Brightside and just rolled on the nonskid. You have to roll on the paint + nonskid mix kind of thick and then apply a lot of pressure to get all the texture evenly applied. I didn't know this on the first coat. I dialed it in by the next couple coats. But I still have some areas that are slightly thicker that is leftover from the first coat.

Intergrip has great instructions for every paint. I didn't use primer for the VC Performance Epoxy, just sanded to the recommended grit. But I used the Epoxy Primekote under the perfection. And the Prekote under the Brightside. If I had to do it again I would Use the epoxy primekote for everything. I had an issue with the Prekote going on a little too thick on the floor and when I went to sand it, it wasn't dry because only the top skinned over. I had to scrape it all up and redo it with the Epoxy Primekote. The Prekote did fine in other areas. User Error for sure.

Here are a few of photos of the 3 paints in the order I have discussed them. Hope this helps. Boat was done 100% with a roller

Got some painting done the other day. Still have to do the bottom in Black. I still need to put another coat on the floor and you can see where I made an error or two. But all in all I think it came out ok for a roller. Boat will be used to duck hunt as well as light commercial fishing.

Still need to paint the bottom black. Been using the boat some. Been catching a few specks and rockfish. I installed the rod holders a week or two ago. I'll post up some pics soon.

Did you get the plate that goes under the jackplate? It will help with the jackplate creating a tunnel for the water to come up through in reverse.

You are going to laugh, but because I'm not 100% sure what the final color(s) will be, I just went to Home Depot and bought a gallon of external BEHR paint. LOL I fully intend for it to come off over the next few months. Eventually I will probably go with awlgrip once I get the colors dialed in.

how does it ride with the bracket vs no bracket? What’s the biggest difference if any?

With bracket is way better. It jumps up on plane alot faster and the ride is a bit smoother. Top end speed is better as it is lighter than before. Also the jack plate makes a difference. The only complaint I have is that the turning radius is not as good as it was, but that may be more because the steering ram I used as opposed to the boat itself. It just doesn't have the range the teleflex cable had. I still need to post pics of the rod holder layout. Just been lazy with posting and using the boat. The speck bite is phenomenal, just not as many keepers as I'd prefer.
