    Isac IMHO it is probably better to just repaint the entire bottom because you may not know how well the locally repainted areas will hold up over time. Len

    Thanks mates

    I just epoxy repaired the hull and will float test it first. 🀞

    I have the spray paint the affected area and see if it is close. If not, I’ll repaint the entire bottom

    If you're going to paint the entire bottom, matching a particular color isn't real critical. I've found any reddish-brown ("hot rod") primer to work in the majority of cases. I would agree with Jumpugly that test patches off the boat should be done in any case.
    I also understand that enamel will work over lacquer, but lacquer won't do as well over enamel because of the different rates of expansion/contraction enamel being more forgiving.

    Hi Isaac,
    Argueably the best you can get is the Tamiya spray paint Hull Red (or Dull Red) TS-33. Its very expensive but unbeatable.
    If you look at the pics of my Puffer, you'll see what it looks like in action.
    Good luck,
    Bryan

    Grab the Rustoleum primers too for tests. Also check out their Satin Claret Wine. It's almost spot on Colin's red lead oxide. Their main upside is they gas out faster than the Krylon paints. They also spray very well for a rattle can over a large surface area with a more robust nozzle, not to mention that they are cheaper than Krylon. A few test sprays on primed scrap is ALWAYS advised. On a personal note: The Krylon Fusion paints stink to High-Heaven and can lead to a one way ticket to divorce court, but their gloss quality is great. πŸ˜‰

    Also, my son has been steering me towards GamesWorkshop/Citadel Paints. But, the top of the line rattle cans by "The Army Painter," and are all the rage with the "games figures" crowd, although at $20 a can they are pricey! But they set fast, gas out well, and dry super flat. Truth be told, I have to do more experimenting with these Warhammer paints...I'm not sold on them yet despite their color variety.

    That looks to be right you could put a matt or semi matt lacquer over it to give a tough surface.
    Cheers Colin.

    Original colour red lead oxide.
    Look for auto/car rattle can primer I believe Halfords has a can to suit.
    Cheers Colin.
