a. Results. I've used latex inside and well, you get what you pay for. It's easier to work with, requires less surface prep, hides imperfections well, is easy to touch up, and will not hold up as well. It is what it is, which is fine. Personally, I think I would generally confine it to inside lockers, but it depends on the boat. I've done a whole cabin before an was not dissatisfied. Scuffing was really only a problem where feet and hard objects could strike, not alongside bunks.
However, more than a house, you should scrub the walls and lightly sand to avoid adhesion problems.
b. Fumes. You should be OK IF you mount an exhaust fan on the fore hatch. You should be able to move a lot of air away from you. I've done this before on many jobs.It also helps if you work from the fan/bow aft.
