Probably not. Paint just doesn't last that long on plastic. There are several companies that can do a "wrap" like you see on bass boats.

Go to the Heroes On Water FB page. They had a truck and a kayak wrapped. Think the name of the company that did the wrap is on the side of the kayak.

almost all sign companies do wraps nowadays. yellow pages/google for a sign company in your area and you are bound to find one (or five).
but, dont be shocked at the price. it's not cheap.

cheers.

Had a friend attempt to airbrush mine. No luck, paint will not adhere to the plastic. :(

A fellow on another forum, Kayak Bass Fishing dot com, painted his Pungo 120. He did an in-depth explaination of the process. He seems to be happy with the results, although it looks like a labor-intensive project. Here is a link to his explaination of how he did it:

He painted it back in 2010, but later on in the same post he shows pics of how it held up after the first year...
