Q&A: What Problems Do You Have With Painting Aluminum?

Question: Where do your main problems with the paint on Morgan’s Cloud lie: with the paint becoming chipped from wear and tear, or from inadequate preparation, or from salt water working under the paint edge?

Answer: All of the above, but any inadequate preparation will result in a bubble sooner or later and it is almost impossible to perfectly prepare an entire boat, particularly on deck.
