Re: Island Trader 41 . . . Good Idea ?

I'd go with Deck and Porch paint over latex. I use Benjamin Moore's stuff inside lockers and such and it holds up well. The water based is flat, alkyd is glossier and my preference.

Ahoy "otherthan". ((( anyone reading this?? )))

I just ran across this topic you started a few years ago. Went to your profile and saw you haven't been active in quite awhile. Hope you, or someone, is reading this.

I was wondering how your purchase went and how you're liking your Island Trader 41. Would also love to see photos. I'm considering buying one.
