I was reading a mercruiser repair site somewhere and they recommended spraying with DP90 as a primer then an enamel finish over this.

You know, here is a little secret, but you guys can't tell anybody ok????? This could ruin most of the paint sales at WM....(not really)


The oldest marine paint out there does not cost $20-$30 for a little can....................

Try $5......................

Wait for it..............................

wait for it..............................

Rustolem black...........................

Go ahead and google Alkyd Enamel (which is what Rustoleum is) as a marine paint. It's the oldest one out there.......

So save your money, get some old school black, and let her rip. Take the money you just saved, and buy some much deserved beers, the good kind, not that Bud Light crap either!!!
