The forum upgrade is complete. It was very uneventful. Please post issues in this thread.

Due to a high level of "bad actor" traffic on the community site Jaysen is implementing a forced verification to confirm that you are a human. This is a PITA and he hates it too. The 3.2 seconds it takes for the one time you have to do it every couple hours is much preferable to the hours we are losing to morons clogging the CPU on the servers. Jaysen is still looking to solve this a bit less intrusively and without cost to BBC. Hopefully the magic solution will appear out of thin air soon. Jaysen is already annoyed.

Pennant Primer without topcoat for compartments

Post by mineratt »

I know that the Pennant Primer makes for a good barrier coat for below the waterline, and for all exterior surfaces I will (and have) be top coating. But for enclosed compartments like the anchor locker up front, or the rear transom compartments, is top coating really necessary?

I would say no as it doesn't jave any wear resistance. My suggestion would be a bilge paint which you will need a primer under such as Petit Bilge Paint that is sold in the store or some have used straight thickened, so it doesn't run down the walls epoxy tinted white. Tom

2nd Tom.

Primers are not as hard as say acrylic enamel.

Some bilge paints allow no primer and u end up two coating.

Don't use expensive two part poly, but do use hard paints that wear well.
