    I'm that idiot who paints a beautifully cared for used boat motor flat brown.
    @Adam Tudor I really expected you to complain about that. Thanks I think of you every time I start that engine.

    Painted mine camo. Worked just fine for 20 years. Scratches? Never noticed any.

    Having wrapped a few items with vinyl film myself, I can't imagine the headaches involved in wrapping my 1436 Lowe jonboat.
    I'm betting a pro would charge you more than the boat cost when purchased new.
    And you SURE don't want to try it yourself.....

    You can buy or make stencils and have fun with some spray bombs. Costs a lot less and works just fine.

    Couldn’t bring myself to paint my new Suzuki. Instead bought a XL camo tshirt and had the ol lady sew the arm and neck holes shut. Pulls over the motor like a sock.
