centaursailor is on a distinguished road
I,m trying warm touch paint additive in the cabin. I stripped out the old rotten lineing a couple of years ago and have had serious winter condensation since.
So far theres a noticable improvement in condensation were the paint is applied compared to the unpainted forward berth, just had our first frosts last week.
The thickness of the mixture is improveing the rough finish of the original fiberglass under the covering.
Early days yet but I reckon its worth aplying a couple of more coats as I still have half the additive left.
I dont live aboard so its not critical. Fitting a solar fan next year but want to see how the paint does this winter on its own.
Safe sailing
