Can you spray a boat with an airless sprayer?
I have sold airless and airspray equipment for 20 years and when I spray a boat I use my HVLP airspray gun. But it can be successfully done with airless just as well if you’ve got tip, settings and technique right. Good luck with the project and post pics when you are done.
