Having done mine the "right way" with Bilge Kote", I would suggest just as good a way would be the 1-2-3 primer and top coat with gray alkyd porch paint off the shelf at Home Depot or Lowes. I don't think I gained a thing using the marine alkyd except the privilege of spending another $30-50.

I followed suggestion I found on TF. Simply scrub everything down with TSP and then I painted out the bilge with Rustoleum Gloss White marine topside paint. The TSP seem to dull the old paint and the Rustoleum had no problem bounding to it. Nice bright shiny white bilges.

That's correct. No top coat. Wasn't needed. They shine right up.
