I'm looking to find some paint
for some metal and plastic underwater parts
on our sailboat as we are completely re-doing everything underwater. We are currently in freshwater north of the great lakes
, but will be heading back to the Caribbean
. The hull
is currently being painted (from bare fibreglass) with Interprotect 2000E and then Micron CSC (and later with 66 when we are in salt
I have sandblasted the aluminum
outdrive and am wondering what paint
to use. The top half is always out of the water
, the bottom is in the water
and underway (out at the dock). I could use an antifouling or another paint.
#2 Bow Thruster case
We have a bow thruster which has a bronze case which has never been painted... (it's brand new)
#3 Bow Thruster prop
The prop on the bow thruster is plastic..
For #1 and #2 I have looked at interlux
and am a bit confused as they no longer seem to have an etch primer and recommend a thinned Interprotect.. which just sounds wrong! Petitte look to have a number of solutions. I'd be okay with all Petitte for the outdrive, but the for the Thruster I'm wondering if I use their etch, then Interprotect and CSC would work so it is the the same as the rest of the boat.
#3 - ideas?
