Ask me about a long past varnish job - gross waste of money and more important time.

Assuming that the expensive paint comes out on top...some times it doesn't in my experience.

I share your pain. When we bought Hobo, the PO did a terrible job on prep and we never have figured out what the paint was. With the right product and prep, it shouldn’t be peeling. We’re still finding loose paint chips.

It is not economical to spend many hours and work cleaning materials to clean bilge then cost with poor coating ....IMO once all surfaces are clean and prep I would use the best coating product available. Penny wisepound foolish , coating failure is assured with cheap stuff.
