What's a good alternative paint for inside lockers and lazerettes

I want to re-paint inside my hull under the cockpit where my battery and other storage is located. Its gray now, but the paint is wearing thin and needs repainting especially where the battery box is mounted. I hate spend $75 quart for polyurethane boat paint just for this area. I don't even have an inboard motor to create heat and oil issues.

Any suggestion from the group?

Although expensive also, I think EPOXY based is the way to go. Even if you don't plan make use of such characteristics, you'll rest assured you have a good hull protection.

I've seen people use a good outdoor porch and floor enamal with success. The next time I have to paint those sections that's what I'm going to use.

I used brightside polyurethane for around $95 a gal. $75 a qt seems high. One gallon did my entire interior.

dutch boy makes a nice one-part polyurethane porch and floor paint that holds up very nicely. I've painted a couple of smaller boats with it, complete hull, trailer launcehd so they never spent more than three straight days in the water at any one time, but I had no complaints, And would not shy away from painting locker interiors with it.

Runs about $20 per gallon, can be picked up in several colors, or in a tint base.

I would go with a one-part polyurethane like Easypoxy. Easy to put on and very durable.

Five years ago I used a polyurethane floor enamel inside hull, lockers, under V berth bed and under the dinnette cushions. My boat lives in a very damp and rainy environment. (Prince William Sound, AK)

It still looks pretty darn good! And it seems to be standing up to mold and mildew as well.

Interlux makes Bilgekote for just this purpose.

I used Bilgekote and results were pretty good. It is excellent for inside lockers and such.

The Interlux recommended wash to prepare the surface for Bilgekote is mostly kerosene and stinks like hell, though
