Protect yourself with proper masks and ventilation.

Fumes of any kind in an enclosed space can be deadly, do brain damage and make you very sick. Don't fool around with it. Set up a good ventilator and use a good quality mask with fume rated filters. You will have to check your supplier.

Those silly little dust masks will not cut it.

Epoxies are among the worst.

On a prior boat I did a job with Bilgekoat. Was happy with the results, though doing it in the winter and with little heating it took almost a week between coats (in the PNW).

an epoxy paint will handle standing fuel spills and battery acid - generally solvent free and odorless.

an mcu metalic paint like aluminum filled aluthane will handle 300 degree temps and is also a good wood or fiberglass sealer. High solvent levels and VOC

Low VOC Epoxy in any area where water might accumulate (around bilge pumps, for example). Osmosis is an issue from inside the hull as well as outside.

In the engine room you want intumescent (Fire rated) paint.

Like this.....

Intumescent paint might be a bit overkill as it swells and chars to prevent the heat from the fire going into the structure. Self-extinguishing, however, would be appropriate.

Someone mentioned sound silencing paint earlier on. One of the attributes of Silent Running is that it is self-extinguishing. I used it during my repower, and thought it gave good value. No connections.
