Nice work. Video does no justice to the paint in person I'm sure

Definitely cool!

What's the advantage/disadvantage of painting a boat vs. gel coat?

Any plans for the yellowing white bottom?

gelcoat is much harder , but not as easy to apply as car paint . I love candy and metal flakes so I just try this Another option is to buy a Malibu response 2016 but I dont have the $$$ or euros in my case (dutch)

The bottom will stay as it is.. thats the original gelcoat. Maybe I wrap that also.

I hope you know what I mean cause my english is not that good.
