Painting a boat is much different than painting a house or car - due to the continual exposure to moisture, UV rays and living organisms, one needs to be more selective with the types and quality of the paint you purchase. Trust the pro’s at Hodges Marine who can help you select the type and color of paint to increase the longevity of your vessel. Bottom paint, also called “antifouling” paint, coats the bottom of your boat and prevents hard and soft organisms from accumulating - this will also make your boat faster and move more efficiently through the water. Engine paint was made specifically for metallic surfaces, to prevent rust and corrosion on your engine surfaces. You can also find marine varnish which is perfect for wood surfaces and will protect against water as well as damage that UV rays cause over time. Protect the life and look of your boat by choosing the experts, Hodges Marine.
