Re: Interior painting time!

We had the scrub forever, flaking no matter how much your sanded and scrubbed problem as well. Finally bit the bullet, turned on a bilge pump and started pressure washing... Three passes later it was finally good enough that we felt we could paint on top.

We used kitchen bathroom paint over a primer in a semi gloss for all the same reasons you express. Looks really nice, but I can't speak to the longevity of the product.

Pressure washing sounds lovely, I figured it wouldn't do much though?
The paint isn't really flaky anymore, unless you go after it with a sharp scraper, below the layer the stupid owners put on there is some discoloration that looks like dirt or mold, then the previous paint, most of which is fairly well bonded to the hull. (I find I have to sharpen ever 4-5 min to keep it working efficiently).
The sander is slow, I tried a stainless cup brush wheel on my angle grinder, but it was too dusty, and got in my eyes, I went back to the random orbital sander.

How much sanding/scraping is enough? I just don't want paint that seems reasonably well stuck now peeling later, and based on the fact that the coat below looked dirty I'm not sure what to do.

I might be nuts, but I love pressure washing inside my boat.
Bit worried about it running into the main cabin though.


Did you use a mold resistant primer? It turns out my paint is a acrylic bathroom/kitchen scrubable paint, I was mistake. My primer does not indicate mold resistance, and I don't want to cause the same kinds of issues the last idiots did, this has NOT been a fun project.

EDIT: Here's my top coat.

Don't use eggshell - that is a matte finish - you want semigloss.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: Interior painting time!

good timing, i am about to paint my v berth too. i plan on using an alkyd enamel from Home depot or lowes. I will be reading carefully as this post may convince me to change my mind. I hope not as this seems like the most economical option.

Re: Interior painting time!

yup, I bought both months ago, just never got around to painting yet, by this time I've ended up with the gallon of rustoleum(the good old fashioned kind with lots of toxic chemicals involved :-)) which is what prompted the question.

I'm pretty sure I have eggshell not semi-gloss, but I could be wrong again, I hope so.

Interior painting time!

Semi gloss is the norm for kitchen and bath paints. As I was researching that seemed to be the standard for moisture filled areas.

Re: Interior painting time!

I agree, I'm pretty sure what I've got is Eggshell though, it is Kitchen and bath, 100% Acrylic.

Re: Interior painting time!

Nice :-).
That's pretty much where I'm at, though my fiberglass isn't nearly that clean yet. What did you use to get all the old paint off?

Times like this I wish I had pockets like the customers boats I work on... Just take it back to bare glass evenly, and put on new Gel-coat then sand it smooth.



re: Eggshell vs semi-gloss, is it adhesion, ease of cleaning or durability thats the issue? The paint I bought from Cloverdale comes in both eggshell and semi-gloss I went with eggshell as it would make the surface appear a lot more fair than it is right now I suspect. I could go buy more, but that's another 40 or 50$ down the drain I suspect if I do.
