Alright Guys here we go..
I was able to get started on the project this weekend! I found the primer and paints at a combination of Wal Mart and AutoZone. Primer was the Duplicolor self etching primer (green). On the interior of the boat I used Duplicolor acrylic enamel and the interior bottom I used the Duplicolor spatter Paint (trunk paint) On the exterior of the boat I used Duplicolor acrylic enamel.

I have not painted the Hull yet and I am not sure if I should. I would like to go with a light grey but am afraid that the paint will not be durable enough. Please tell me your thoughts on this.

Light blue 2 small cans.
Dark blue 1 large can
Grey 2 large cans
spatter paint (floor) 5 cans
White 2 large cans.
Primer 4 cans.

I have also started the framing for the deck. Please letme know what you think and here are some photos...

Victor,
The shot from the outside looks good. Can you take closeup of the inside? How is the framing coming along?

Some of you may already know this, I used the duplicolor spatter paint for the bottom interior of my boat I went out this weekend and much of the paint washed right off! I know that it was not acrylic enamel but I thought since it was trunk paint it would be durable. I was wrong. The rest of the paint looks great so, lesson learned. more pics to come.

yes Jim I wanted to make it removable since I am getting some water. I hope I can just remove the floors and open the rear and front hatches to dry it out until I can figure a way to seal the bottom. also I might want to deck the whole front when the boys get bigger.Any opinions welcome!!

No I haven't but when I do what would be my next move? I filled it with water in the beginning and none leaked out.so I took it out and I saw water coming in at the plug so I went and bought a new one which was very tight I then painted the bottom (interior) and took it out again more water, and I ruined the paint. #-o

It was coming in from where the plug was? Or around the plug...the aluminum part?

Since you put it that way I guess I should look a little more closely. =D> I have to laugh at my ignorance!!
