In 2020 we added the Pettit line of paint and varnish.  This gives our customers more finishing options.  We recently expanded on our Interlux line of finishing products to include their super durable 2-part Perfection paint & primer.  We also added the Intergrip non-skid finish additive. 

Here at CLC we have been building boats for over 25 year, and we know what works.  Our staff has used all of the products shown below, and we recommend all of them.  If you are not sure what you need, do not hesitate to reach out.  We can assist you in selecting the proper paint, varnish, additive, and finishing supplies you will need to complete your project.
