painting lockers

Howdy all!
I am gettting ready to repaint the inside of my lockers on my Cheoy lee 35 offshore. I am planning on using an oil base primer and exterior oil base paint. I just wanted to see if any one else had any other ideas or if there are issues with this material choice.
Thanks a lot, I appreciate any input

I've had good luck with singlepart polys like Bilgekote from Interlux, but also with some of the 'plastic enamel' paints from the usual home outlets.

To be honest I'm not sure if there's any significant difference between Brightsided single part and Bilgekote or any of the other varieties from Interlux.. they cost about the same. These are all pretty fumey so ensure decent ventilation.

teach, when paints (excuse me, "coatings") are compounded one of the key factors is chafe and wear resistance. A ceiling paint will scuff right off, like whitewash. An interior wall paint is designed to withstand some scuffing. An exterior paint? Probably more. But epoxy paints and urethane paints (2-part being the best) are designed to take the constant wear and chafe of stuff being dropped in and on and against them. They'll bond better than a plain exterior paint, and more importantly, wear longer.

So they should be cheaper in the long run.

I agree, Cheap usually tends to only be momentary...
Go with the 'real stuff' or do a chemical analysis and be prudent in your % of solids. Makes a very big difference.

Any bulkhead or locker that comes in contact with the engine/ electrical rooms would be a strong candidate for coating with a non-toxic, water based, intumescent (fire retardant) coating. High quality intumescent coatings, are impact resistant because of high solid content and water resistant. They can be overcoated with a thin layer of polyurethane to provide added "wearabilty". Water based intumescent products can protect coated surfaces to well over 2000 Deg F - past the range of hydrocarbons and are proven to limit flame spread. A few of the good brands are IMO and Lloyds certified.

Valspar Duramax exterior water based works fine inside the boat and has done well in the engine area and does NOT seem to lift form the small amount of water from the stuffing box

I just painted the LPG locker with Bilgekote. The old tanks had rusted out so all the surfaces were rust coloured. Was very impressed with the paint, it covers great, drys quickly and sets very hard.

Are you saying that with a simple cleaning, paint it on? Their website says that it is self priming. Flexible so it won't peel or crack.
Interesting paint.
