I built a cabinet with four drawers on my J/27. The face frame and drawer boxes are constructed from half-inch okoume plywood
and the drawer fronts are teak
. I want to paint
the face frame white because I think it will make the teak
stand out. Total area is probably about 5 sq ft. What primer and paint
would you recommend--do I need to go to the expense of Interlux
? I keep the boat in fresh water
lake) and it is "mostly dry."
Also, should I paint the edges of the plywood
(drawer box edges and face frame cut-outs) with a thin coat of West System to prevent moisture from getting between the plywood layers? Do I need to treat the entire drawer boxes with some sort of sealant
The top surface of the cabinet is also okoume, but I glued a laminate on top of that.
I hope to have the most cruiser-friendly J/27 around. This is my attempt to have both a fun racer
for club races and a nice day sailer/cramped weekender for my family
