I totally agree. That boat looks great. Doesn't have to be factory 100 point concours correct to be cool. Do what pleases you but leave it intact so somebody else can redo it again in the future, over and over again.

forget about the price. I only posted the ad to show the paint. The colors are probably not a very close match, but still looks great.
Take liberty and paint any color you want. I painted the interior of mine white, polished the outside... far from original which was anodized blue.

Yep pretty boat, I right clicked saved all the pics from the ad, though at $10k it will be around a while. The gold is tough to match, it looks pretty good but lacks the pop compared to a new piece of gold anodized aluminum. I showed the wife the pics and it got her more excited for ours, I need to get working on it.

The windshield is off in one pic, my guess is it's not installed but included.

beautiful boat
price is up there but you could not build this for that ,specially if you are having someone do the paint
would love top see it up close to see if it is as nice as it looks

windshield not correct and not likely attached as had gaps against deck and missing a screw on bow bird but i sure wish mine was that nice !

Thanks guys.....I’ll try to get some pictures posted today. Right now the boat is just a shell. Gonna take some time to get it cruising. I did think about changing the colors....some kind of green trimmed in some other nature oriented color. Really like these boats.

I've seen several blue painted ones and all looked respectable. The gold on the other hand is hard to replicate. No reason you cannot go custom. How about a wild period correct Watsonesque panel paint job or 60's style seaweed flames or lace paint or freak dots or candy red over gold flake. How adventurous are you?

I have always used PPG products. They are excellent and available at our local automotive paints supply store. As Marc said, it's all in the prep. Below is the blue I used for a Rocket 2 a few years ago. It might be a little dark but a nice color with a small amount of metallic. I have used single stage and base coat/clear coat (2 stage). Either is fine it just depends on what you want. The blue Rocket 2 is the one I painted. Keep your eyes peeled for cars with a color you like and the paint shop can mix it for you. Good Luck. John

Welcome, care to show some pictures? That's a nice boat the clipper deluxe.
Any good automotive paint will work. I am one not to skimp out on cheap junk. Preparation is key to any good paint job.
If I were going to paint a blue feathercraft, I like a more of a turquoise color.

Good luck have fun!

The coloring on Feather Crafts comes from an anodizing process, not paint, therefore there are no paint codes. Others will chime in on your thread who have painted their boats trying to duplicate the original anodizing or just because they wanted to paint. You can use the SEARCH button to review previous threads on the subject, but here is one you can start with....
