Welcome to our community Jblakeogd,


Rust-Oleum says that thinning this product is not required unless you are planning on spraying this paint. Typically thinning any paint will ruin the integrity of the paint. Thinning will also shorten the life span of the paint. I would highly recommend using this product at full strength. That way you can get as much life out if it as possible. I would hate for you to have to repaint your boat soon. :smileywink:


Using a sprayer, paint brush or roller is recommended for applying this product.


Please let us know when we can help again!
