I bought and Oldtown Appalachian withh all the gear for rapid for a verry good price.

My problem is the canoe is Red.

In fall I do a lot of duck Hunting and I'd like to get the canoe Pain.
I'd like to have hit pain green inside and outside

What would be my best option?

Thx

Krylon makes paints specifically for plastics that is supposed to chemically link to the plastic surface.

I painted a couple of Royalex boats with Rust-Oleum "Painter's Touch" multi-purpose paint a few years ago and it did very well. Lasted 3-4 years (longer than the boats) and only came off where the hull scraped on something. Only surface prep was to wipe with acetone. I used a spray painter and found the paint very easy to appy.

Sound good
I just don't want something that the paint will start to pill off with time.

My boat is already Verry scratchy because of rock in white water.
I know if I paint it, evrytime I'll make a scratch I'll see some red but that not a problem I'll just paint over it:)

I saw and ESQUIF prospecteur 16" Camo last weekend :o . but I think it's a prototype I wished it was on sale and that I had the money to by it......

Try to find an older Mad River Dealer, they may have ROYALEX Touch up Paint.
Believe it or not, you can use wetsand paper, starting at 600 grit then move up to 1000 grit. DO NOT USE WATER!!! After lightly sanding(if necessary) use DENATURED ALCOHOL to wipe down the hull before painting.
ACETONE WILL MELT YOUR ROYALEX!
