PAINTED PONY

Boating - - BOAT DOCTOR / Q&A -

Q: Mick, I own a non­de­script 1960s 13-foot run­about pow­ered by a Johnson out­board. I would like to paint it to match my 1970 Ford Mus­tang, with which I tow my boat to car shows. Can this be done?

John Stevens Phoenix, Ari­zona

A: First, I’d like to note that Johnson out­boards of that era bore the Sea Horse mar­que and hope the irony isn’t lost on you — or any­body else! Pet­tit Paint (pet­tit­paint.com) and oth­ers of­fer a range of DIY paint prod­ucts. You can also see a step-by-step guide to DIY hull paint­ing at boat­ing­mag.com/never-waxy­our-boat-again.
