I sanded off all old paint and then after cleaning the boat real good....I used approx 6 cans of Rust-Oleum Self Etching Primer before I applied any paint.

I ALWAYS remove my rod holders when my boat is not being used...and in the winter I always remove my seats so as not to get weather beaten. I find that when you take good care of your stuff.....your stuff will take good care of you.

I got all my ideas from this awesome forum in which I HIGHLY recommend to any and all boat owners rookies or experienced. I used the K.I.S.S. theory (keep it simple stupid) for my tin and I'm really happy with the results. I thank all fellow boatsmen forum members for your support and comments. =D>...
