Calculating Paint Needed

The following formulas are general guidelines for calculating how much surface area will need to be painted. It is good practice to multiply final number by 1.15 to factor an additional 15% material to make sure you don't run short in the middle of a project due to unforeseen events.

Hull Above the Waterline:

2x (Total Length + Width) x Average High Between Waterline and Deck 

Super Structure:

(Total Height + 2x Length + 2x Width) - Window Sections


(0.75 x Total Length x Width) - Super Structure

Note: The above calculations are general guidelines. Exact needed quantities may proof higher. Always calculate ~15% additional material depending on application method and surface.
