You really have to be careful, don't want to get a hook in the wrong worm. Might end up with an extra piercing.

My dinghy is made from injection molded polypropylene, and it is exactly the right size.

First, the bed liner will insure that you end up at the bottom of the lake/river/pond. That stuff is very heavy.

Second, after prepping, you might look at getting a body shop to shoot the boat with real paint equipment. They will prime, prep and lay several good coats of paint on. it will last years longer than rattlecan paint and is much less hassle.

One third idea is to have the boat powdercoated instead of painting it. Powdercoating is rock hard and will hold much longer than paint. just will require a big tub and battery - and goggles...and a couple of friends.

I like the powder coating idea, I will have everything we need and will have it set up for the summer get together. Bring some goggles, rubber gloves would'nt hurt either. See you in August.

Spray bed-liner too heavy? I doubt it very much at the required thickness.It forms a thin foamy layer,consequently much of it is gas.I saw some cans on clearance at Walmart recently for a couple of bucks-funky colors though.That would certainly be my first choice for an old boat.It's tough and quite slip resistant.

A paint-shop job would be an expensive short term alternative and probably slippery.

Powder coating I imagine would crack if there is any significant flex in the boat. It's also prone to chipping,if say a heavy knife was dropped on it.

Just my two cents.
