    Hi, looking to have my Gregor 15 ft Baja Special repainted with Zolatone 20 series paint. Just the interior only. Does anyone know of anyone in the San Diego area that still sprays Zolatone. Thanks

    I think Zolatone is illegal in California.

    I spoke with TCP in the miramar area and they said they carry it.

    fishnfreak, I'm a good guy so I'll tell you what we can do, I'll spring for a gallon and we will do your boat first and see how she looks. And I will throw in a couple pounds of chicken feathers so it will be nonslip surface. Just let me buddy

    Ill check on that and see if it is BASS APPROVED, i dont want any unfair advantages, by looking like a trolling feather.
    I think your flex seal even has a lifetime warranty.

    Well, if Tri-City has it, it must be legal! I am curious too, as I have a aluminum boat too. How to support it during application...

    When I have done aluminum boats I used Parker duck boat paint , available in a few different colors , holds up for years . Make sure you get an aluminum compatible paint , they are specifically engineered for a non corrosive finish . Any copper or iron in the mix will create an electrolysis problem . It will turn the surface into a battery and corrode holes in the boat . Primers are specific as well . The Parker coatings are made for aluminum and for sure are compatable also self etching so no primer needed unless you want the extra protection Parkers primer will provide . Another outlet for what is needed is Aircraft Spruce for dedicated aluminum finishes . If the original finish is really bad take the boat to a truck wash that will do an acid wash designed for bare aluminum trailers tanks etc . Good luck . Don't turn your boat into a sieve with the wrong paint ! WR

    It seems we can order Zolatone on Amazon as well. I didn't see any restrictions for delivery in CA.
