I have an older Hylas
47 (1986) that has a cosmetic issue I want to fix. The interior
bulkheads of the two heads were finished in a white laminate. At some point these developed cracks. This is a bit surprising to me, as this is a very solid boat
. Unlike any other boat
I have had, there is absolutely no sounds of creaking down below while underway in a seaway. At any rate, most photos I have seen of other similar H47's have shown the same problem.
My idea is to pull all the laminate off the wood bulkheads, and then sand and paint
them white. I have never used two-part paints before, but I am guessing that is the best way to go. My quick initial look at paints seems to suggest that the Pettit EZ Poxy2 could be a good way to go. They claim that exact mixing ratios are not real critical. Since these are not huge surfaces, I am guessing it would be best to just use a brush.
Any thoughts or input would be appreciated. Should I get myself one of the fancy/expensive brushes
to apply, or will sponge brushes
be just as fine? I am hoping this paint
will be good at self leveling so I do not end up seeing brush strokes.
