potable water tank paint

I have a built in fiberglass water tank that needs cleaning and repainting.
The top cover is painted wood. The wood underneath appears to be in good shape but it
needs to be painted and a new gasket.

Any recommendations on a paint that will be safe for potable water?

I did a google search and found a sherwin williams product, Epoxide(TM) II that was used
for potable water tank. http://www2.sherwin-williams.com/im/...twatertank.asp
I am new to this so any help would be appreciated.

I'd use Ceram-Kote54 Epoxy. It is an epoxy coating specifically designed for use on potable water tanks.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
