For timber trawlers a mate of mine who has been in the game for 40 years swears by good quality house paints.

Marketing.
Not trying to convince anyone, use what you like and whatever makes you feel better .
I'm sure you're absolutely right. Stick the name marine on anything, and Bob'syeruncle, the price trebles. And no doubt this pertains for paints as well, up to a point. The trouble is knowing which is ok to use, and which not, and that's where the certainty which comes from buying a certified marine type of anything, but paint in particular, gives a certain peace of mind, knowing one has used a reputable product, and with an implied warranty. That peace of mind is rather hard to put a value on...

I disagree. Surely you can't say that of all of the marine specific branded paints that they aren't needed and that a house paint would do? So essentially these companies have been around for many many years based on a lie? I don't think so. There are decorative paint coatings and protective paint coatings. There is no place for decorative paint coatings on the external surfaces of a boat. The cost of a product isn't going to determine if I buy a product or not. The product has to be fit for purpose. My windows and doors for example. I could have saved myself $7,000 and fitted a screen door off a house and some house Windows. Essentially they are the same thing being Windows but I guarantee you they'll be rooted in less than a year. Fillers are the same. Sure you can buy a cheap two part filler but stick it in water alongside epoxy filler and see what happens. Granted I have expensive taste and am of the view that if I can buy the best then I will if I can't then I will wait until I can but I'm not the kind to throw money hand over fist either. If I can save money I will but substituting a product with another because it's "essentially the same" is a critical error imho. There is a time and a place for everything. SOLSTICE is having items fitted from caravans(RV's) and housing construction materials and items but where they are fit for purpose. Pull the SDS and TDS of the items you want to compare and study them. I think you'll find the items are far from "identical with different labelling" ....

Ah, Hendo, I think either you meant to click on 'quote' to Simi, or totally misunderstood my post, because essentially that is exactly what I said as well - what you said. Which is why I said...

"The trouble is knowing which is ok to use, and which not, and that's where the certainty which comes from buying a certified marine type of anything, but paint in particular, gives a certain peace of mind, knowing one has used a reputable product, and with an implied warranty. That peace of mind (in using a marine specified product, in other words - my edit to make clearer), is rather hard to put a value on..."

I guess I was justifying why I am happy to pay $61.95 for Interdeck, instead of buying some similar, and much cheaper house paint, and throwing in some sort of non-skid, as Simi 60 was recommending. Each to his own, I guess.

Regarding deck coating item I'd sent PM to Matt about:


1. Expensive - $924.48 per 50 lbs. = approx. 70 sq. ft. 1/8" coverage = $13 + per sq. ft.
2. Pre coat-cleaner needed and top coat sealer recommended... did not find out cost of those two. However, I did speak with company owner John regarding product installation, quality, durability and its great surface-adherence value... always remaining non skid and easy to clean - Comes in white only; i.e. the color I want.
3. Glows amber/yellowish in the dark for added boat showing as well as night time sure-footed travel on decks. Evidently it glows pretty darn bright for about 12 hrs after fairly short charge from sun or even just incandescent lights... therefore might not be good idea to have on front deck for night travel, as the light might interfere with our eyes adjusting to night vision for seeing up ahead. I was told that there is no glow if any light is available; that it only glows in the dead-dark of night. Demarcation line could be established about mid ships wherein same color/texture coating could be continued forward but with no glow feature inherent.
4. So damn tough it's used on airport runways stripes and does not wear out.
5. Fore to now never used as deck coating on pleasure boats.
6. Glow feature is non radioactive.


Super-Krete: http://www.super-krete.com/products/


Glo-Kote: http://www.super-krete.com/s-9350-glo-kote/ See the video.


I plan to purchase small bag and try it out... within the next year, maybe??

I never recommended using much cheaper house paint and throwing in non skid beads.

What I said was using
: brand A urethane paint and adding non skid beads
Vs buying
: brand B urethane pain with non skid beads all ready mixed in

Brand A Urethane has pictures of commercial ships, oilrigs etc on tin and is a fraction of the cost of brand B Urethane with pictures of superyachts on the tin.
They are both urethane paints.

The other recommendation was to use
: Brand A durable, water-based acrylic polymer
Vs
: Brand B durable, water-based acrylic polymer
Same as above, one with pictures of yachts on the can is much more expemsive than the other
Both are durable, water-based acrylic polymer used for providing a waterproof textured membrane.

I never said that at all
But whats the bet the original paint on the topsides of your ex work boat was house paint?

Many of them are based on clever marketing, peoples emotions and their lack of knowledge of product.

I never suggested painting a boat in a decorative paint finish either.
I couldn't imagine anything worse than having my topside painted in Liquid Bronze & Bronze Verdigris or similar

While I take your point I have to wonder how house boats get away with using caravan windows and doors for all those decades.
For an ocean going boat you are right though, marine windows have rounded corners to eliminate stresses and use 6061 alloys in the frames and are anodised for durability.
But no one mentioned windows

And no one mentioned using polyester putty, though I can assure you, production boats made from polyester resins use it all the time.

Oh so you now admit that there are NON marine products that are suited for a boat.
Interesting

I personally would never use C and D grade ply or cheap pine framing on a boat if it was my choice but each to his own

And what did they say about the house grade C and D grade ply and pine framing you used

Did it specifically mention in the SDS and TDS that it was suitable for use in the marine industry?

There is no other such as Matt on TF or just about any other forum. He's probably forgotten more about customization on nearly anything than most of us will ever learn - you and me included. Matt is a natch for customizing as well as being a super hard worker.

I say the above because (and although it's not necessary - he takes care of himself very well!) there are those here, me included, who do not feel it correct for anyone, you included, to cast undue dispersions toward or upon Matt... or his works.

Take that as you like, constructive criticism is fine and suggestions are good too... I standby what I said regarding dispersions!

Dispersion's?
All I am pointing out is that Matt says one thing yet has done something else entirely.

He shitcans my comment about using NON marine product on a boat and claims they are not up to the job yet his boat is full of NON marine product.
Hypocrisy in its most pure form.

Quite possibly, but with over 30 years in the marine industry I have my fair share of knowledge as well.

I am sure you do... but I really like Craig's post 2816. That's the point I tried to get across. Craig is much more eloquent about making the same point - than I am!

How did giving advice and discussing it get so bitter?
It`s Matt`s boat. If he wants to use a particular product it`s his call. If you think he contradicts himself, let him, he will have his reasons. If he errs he`ll be redoing his error, and from the experience of watching his build, he`ll accept it. None of us are perfect, all the time, or at all. Few things are all white or black, shades of grey are everywhere.
