My panels are an ugly orange and I’m eager to change that. I’ve seen old pontoons with painted panels with flaking paint. I sure don’t want that but I don’t know if they’re that hard to paint or the crummy-looking ones weren’t prepped properly.
PontoonStuff has rolls of new aluminum for $179. This makes more sense but then I noticed it’s thinner (.015) than house siding (.019 & .024) & much more expensive.
And then there’s other materials like PVC rolls is similar thicknesses.
