- Sep 3, 2013Deck paint,I use www. ipaint.us. They have a nice range of BlueWater Marine paint. I use the single part polyurethane with their non skid additive. It's a good price and works well, just the rot amount of stick without being harsh on the feet.

I am thinking about what to coat the cockpit plywood with in my Chebacco 25 build. (that indicates that I am getting closer to finished - the cockpit is almost finished and the cabin structure is being built ).From what I have read and experienced with other boats, I should be glassing the foredeck to protect from checking and damage . I might use Dynel as an alternative as it did pretty well on the bottom of my Cartopper.But if the foredeck needs protecting then surely the cockpit will need similar.What advice/experience is there for how much coating is enough. Epoxy+paint? Epoxy+glass+paint?, what paint?. The boat will basically be a trailer sailer so should have a cover on it most of the time - but "should" doesn't mean that it won't blow off.Andrew
