Q & A

how much paint

hi
how much metal paint is needed for 34ft springer [not blacking]
how many coats of each and how much paint would a coat use, if u can guesstimate an amount
im hoping 5 L of gloss, same of undercoat would do it
also is it worth using a gloss formulated for metal, or just a good quality gloss which does metal or wood
thanks

WW says:

The coverage of 1 litre of gloss paint will be around 12 sq metres. Your boat is around 10m long; assuming that you are intending to paint the inside surface of the cabin this should be possible with 5 litres but only just, for one coat of the sides and roof. It would be best to use a metal primer such as red oxide with a gloss top coat. To ensure a decent coating that will prevent future corrosion two top coats would be best.
