Remove any loose paint.
Scrub boat down with a Scotch Brite pad or equivalent.

Paint base coat (be sure to cover high traffic areas such as floor and side rails with 2-3 coats).
Apply stencil starting on the front exterior area of the boat. Once finsihed with the exterior, move to the interior. To speed up the process or for those of you who plan to paint more than 1 boat, 2 sets of stencil are recommended. This way, when one stencil is soaking in cleaner, you can continue to paint.

Does Redleg Camo paint boats?
No, Redleg Camo does not paint boats. However, we can assist you in finding a painter that will take care of you.
How big of a boat will a standard paint kit cover?
Our kits contain 1 gallon base, and 1/2 gallon for stencil colors. This will generally cover up to an 18' aluminum boat. We recommend doing 1 base coat, then go over high traffic areas (floor, seats, rails, etc) with 1-2 more coats. Stencils only need 1 coat.

What is included in the stencil kits?
All kits, besides the 9x12 DIY kits, include stencils and directions. The directions will tell you what the suggested colors are and in what order to apply the stencils. Stencil kits do not include paint. Paint must be purchased separately. Paint is available here at redlegcamo.com, or you can call Sherwin Williams to order directly. Their number is also in the FAQ section. Ordering directly may speed up paint delivery.
Does Redleg Camo have a store I can visit?
In order to keep cost down and efficiency up, Redleg Camo is online only. We also offer free shipping on most items so no-one has to burn gas!
Do i need to prime my boat before painting?
Only bare aluminum needs primer. If you're priming an entire boat, our primer kit works great. If you're only doing a small area, pick up a can or 2 of self etching primer from Lowes/Home Depot.
Do paint kits include stencils?
No, paint kits include paint only. Stencils sold separately.
I sprayed clear coat on my boat and it turned white! Whats wrong?
If Sher-Clear clear coat is sprayed in high humidity, it will absorb moisture and make the boat look white. Once the moisture evaporates out of the paint, it will clear up. Heat will speed up the process. We suggest leaving the boat in the sun to bake. Depending on your local weather, it may take several days to clear up totally.
How do i hold the stencil against the boat so the pattern isn't blurry?
There really is no science to holding the stencil against the boat. Bottom line, do the best you can. Take your time. Also keep in mind that no paint job is perfect. You will not notice a little bit of blurring when the job is complete. Here are a few pics to help.
