Nothing says finished like a good coat of white

capnorv Yes, oil based paint! The light cream color I put in my Newport 27 in 1997 still looks good. It was a Sherwin-Williams paint. Don't remember what other than there wern't a lot of oil based choices even then. And my guess is if you're in California there aren't any, at least back in the 70's there weren't, when I was there. But there are state lines? Make sure you use that adhesive primer, it really helps.

mitiempo Not me, and unfortunately not my boat either.

I've never had that much hair and I hate green.

QuickMick Brian, is that you now, or 35ish years ago?
02-15-2011 04:01 PM
mitiempo White with wood trim is a classic look that also makes the space look larger. Green is the color you achieve when seasick.

ps - what amazed me when googling is that you can still buy ugly leisure suits.

vadimgo For example,
Duration Exterior Acrylic Latex from Sherwin Williams ?
Looks good, but my uderwstanding was, oil based paints are better?
02-15-2011 02:27 PM
capnorv Sherwin-Williams makes an adhesive primer (about $75/gal) that makes painting interiors very easy. They also have a large selection of oil based paints. We painted our interior 8 years ago, and have enjoyed the variety and contrasts with the interior teak. Now we're preparing to sell that boat so I'm painting it back to white when the weather is warm enough. Resale, nonwhite interior is a detriment. The good part is we now have a new canvas to personalize in our new boat. It also is warmer to add color in a cabin...just stick to light tints.

omaho5 Ah, this is right down my ally. Retired painting contractor.
Lime green is only appropriate for your 70's leisure suit not your boat
unless you wear the suit on your boat.
That said here is what I'd do
1. Lightly, did I say lightly, sand areas to be painted. Did I say lightly ? Tack cloth area.
2. Appropriate primer..I have my favorites...Make sure it is a "bonding primer."
3. For interior I would choose a 100% acylic EXTERIOR paint of your gloss
choice. Do at least two coats, roll and tip.. Roller to be a quality foam.
4. VERY lightly sand first, VERY lightly, coat. Tack cloth and apply sacond
coat.
5. Email me if you need more... No idea where to obtain eisure suit.
