Best Paint for Marine Plywood and Rusted Metal

Hi,

Got a couple of projects going on.

Looking for recommendations for paint for marine plywood and for rusted metal.

Thanks,

Chris

Rustoleum. Have it on a spare anchor and also the center console of an outboard skiff.

Re: Best Paint for Marine Plywood and Rusted Metal

If you are not going to fiberglass the plywood first, don’t use a two part polyurethane. It’s too hard and not very flexible. The wood will move enough to crack it eventually. I’d use Interlux Briteside or Pettit EzPoxy. Both are single part polyurethane. Follow the instructions for priming wood.
