Painting inside chain locker

I am in the midst of a major refit and one of the jobs is painting the inside of the chain locker. The previous (ordinary) paint did not stand up very well to the movement of the chain. Any ideas about what coating to use that would take the abuse? Something cheap from Home Depot would an be even better idea than something expensive from the boat store.

Re: Painting inside chain locker

My chain locker is lined with wood slats that are unpainted but treated with a preservative. Oiling also works well.

Rustoleum, sticks to pretty well everything, spray is easy, if using can try to get oil based (old type) rather than latex

Re: Painting inside chain locker

use epoxy remover to get it down to bare FRP it will come out with a scraper
then gel coat it with a brush hard shell finish and looks good

Re: Painting inside chain locker

We used Bilge Kote and then lined the locker with dri-deck. We also used some mildew killer in the bilge kote paint before applying. Keeps mildew and mold from getting a foothold.

Re: Painting inside chain locker

I have always hated having my anchor chain sit in the bottom of the locker in salt water. So I went to Home Depot and purchase some rubber matting that is used in restaurants so the floor can be wet, but you are standing on the rubber mat, the one I have is black with many holes through. I cut this to size for the bottom and then lined the sides to keep them clean too.

Sherwin Williams makes a tank lining paint, white, 2-part epoxy. We use this on all interior hull & locker surfaces. Fast cure, hard as nails. Glossy and brilliant finish.
