IMHO the best reasonably priced simple suggestion to date.

Re: Calling all paint experts - advice needed...

Ok, let the shouting begin. I used Kiwi on one boat. Need low order and stick to anything. You can give it a very light texture and it hides everything. For less money you can use any of a batch of brands of acrylic latex deck mains with a bit of filler. Goes on thick, sticks to everything. Easy to add new coats. Not perfect but fills a lot of ugly. it stayed on the cat walls with no problems for 8 years when I sold the boat. And as far as I know is still there.

current boat used the deck paint....needs the thickener but sticks as well.

Re: Calling all paint experts - advice needed...

there are heaps of ultra high build epoxies available that can be applied at 2-5mm thick most normal epoxy high builds will cover rovings airless spray is the go . I am an industial spraypainter by trade if you don't want adhesion problems stay away from single pack products unless your going to seriously sand the entire area as opposed to a solvent wipe before applying 2 pack.

I agree with this. I painted the very rough interior of my previous boat, and it looked great. I used the gloss white Rustoleum enamel you can buy at the home improvement stores (and I'm sure elsewhere). It looked good, and the gloss surface wiped clean easily. Adhesion was excellent, and it never cracked even on a hull that flexed a lot.

Re: Calling all paint experts - advice needed...

Was in the marine coatings industry for many years and recently have done a few refits with exactly this problem, ie mat pattern on the underside of a deck mould, after many trials KIWI GRIP deck paint was the most successful for overhead application it is thicksotropic and hangs up well at a high film thickness easily applied with large brush or trowel quick drying and when cured is a ceiling flat gloss level and scrubs well.

Re: Calling all paint experts - advice needed...

Don't know if you've got it all figured out yet but, we had the same dilemma.
I purchased a durable cotton/polyester fabric and the good quality mildew resistant quilt backing. Captain Eric screwed and/or glued (only where necessary) a few "nailers" and we used stainless staples to adhere the fabric on the corners and center. Covered the margins with mahogany molding, and voila!
Now at 2 years and looks great! While we know it's not permanent (what is?), it cost a lot less in time and money and looks great!
