I saw on another forum where a guy used Benjamin Moore M22 to paint his boat and claimed the results were pretty good, even rolling & Tipping. So, I contacted Benjamin Moore to ask what kind of primer they would recommend for a sailboat and they said they would advise me to paint without a primer! They claim this paint will adhere extremely well to old sanded paint or to sanded fiberglass, so a primer is not required. They did mention using one of their specific cleaners prior to painting. No surprise about painting right on top of the old paint, but even on the areas where I have sanded it all away? That is a bit surprising.

Will Durabak seal mt Trawler deck for good. Dirty moisture coming out of cracks in paint. Water must be getting in there and coming out on hot days. Archie BRICKER

Re: Painting deck - Primer question

I never primed anything on the boat, and the slick areas were merely rolled and tipped, and other than a few runs, the finish, after two coats, came out mirror smooth and remain that way after two years.

I used Kiwi Grip for the no skid, and highly recommend it. It looks great, wears like iron, I scrub it a couple times a season with bathroom cleanser and it cleans up beautifully. When I have problem stains, I use LA Totally Awesome Cleaner, which I purchase from Dollar General for #1 a spray bottle, and that stuff will clean just about anything, including the nasty stains from spider poop.

Good luck,
