There are plenty of adhesives that would bond to marelon, 3M 5200 does. I thought this material is interesting. I am not sure of the specs, but I believe it is very strong and more flexible than fiberglass, so the hull could be relatively thin and flexible.

SS can successfully be painted with two-pack epoxy paint. It requires only a light whip blasting with a suitable abrasive. Also good brand primer can be successfully applied to polished SS.

I would think we lose one S from the SS this way. What I meant was paint the SS without it loosing its S properties.

Otherwise why use it.

Painted SS is used in all size of vessels for Hawsehole, Fairleads, Rubbing strake, Gunwale in other words everywhere where the coating of a vessel can be easily damaged. The SS does not loose its properties but just loose itís shiny SS saucepan appearance.
