      A couple of weeks ago you guys helped me out with a question about
      filling and finishing my Bobcat. Someone postedin the thread a comment
      about acrylic latex paints .... I followed the link and searched
      through previous posts on this subject, but so far alomst all have
      pertained to using this paint over bare wood or epoxy.

      My boat is covered with fiferglass and polyster resin. I was planning
      on using an oil based exterior porch and deck paint. I tried a sample
      of it and found it to be failry hard and it settled out to a VERY nice
      finish after brushing it on. SO...... what do you guys recommend, Oil
      based or acrylic enamel??? Also, What should I sela the interior
      with before painting? Iwas going to use thinned polyester resin, but
      alocal guy suggested, shellac????

      I appreciate any help!!

        I rcomend RUSTOLIUM Topside paint for the outside .
        I know what the label says but there was a guy last year at the duckworks messabout.
        (Hey guy if you are reading forgive me for I have forgotten your name)
        Anyhow he built probably the most beautiful boat with steam bent and laminated woods.
        Beautiful!
        I believe it was called the WEE LASS.
        He epoxied the bottom and painted it with topside.
        If he trusted it on his boat I sure would trust it on mine!
        I suggest the varnish RUSTOLIUM makes as well.
        I love their products and use them on all projects.
        If they made underware I would wear them.
        Thanks

          I have used both oil based and latex paints on boats. What I have found is that the latex is
          easier to apply and clean up but does not give you as hard or pretty of a finish. They both
          will hold up well for a long time. If you want a shinny yacht type finish then use oil base
          or polyurethane. If you aren't picky and hate to paint then use latex. As I said latex is
          easier but is soft and will collect dirt and show brush marks. I usually go for latex because
          I hate to sand and paint.
