PPG Pitthane in Bilge and Engine Room?

The marina that we're using to haul out and start phase one of our major refit has suggested that we let them clean the bilge and engine room and then they'll apply Pitthane paint. I believe it is spelled Pitthane because I googled this paint and it came back with that spelling, however on the price quote it is spelled Pythane. Anybody have any experience with this? Better than bilge paint I'm assuming?

It sounds expensive for the bulge. What about using Bilgecote?

Seems awfully expensive to have someone else clean and paint your bilge......Are you having them pull the engine?

I thought the same thing but the guy at the marina swears by this stuff for keeping the bilge and engine room clean. All in all, even if its double the price of conventional bilge paint its still small money compared to the cost of labor that goes into ripping the engine, tanks, etc out to paint all this stuff. Might as well use the best.

Yes, we're ripping everything out of the bilge and engine room including the engine and tanks. I'm going to do as much of the work as I can but the yard will be the ones actually hoisting the motor out etc. So while its ALL out I might as well do it right.
