I used the water based stuff with minimal prep and it seems to be doing fine...it is a primer so it's designed to handle some issues with less than perfect preparation.

If there's enough oil...nothing will stick including enamel, poly or epoxy based.

It does get smudges dirty pretty easily...then again so do a lot of paints...I'm still working down there a lot so I haven't really tried to clean it up yet.

I figure it won't be the last time I head down there with a paint brush.

Nifty looking selfie you're sporting in your avatar, about how I pictured you

Greetings,
Mr. CP. I'm using Devoe 2 part water based epoxy for inside lockers (freshen up) and bilge coating. Minimal odor and easy clean up. Actually spraying a good part of it. Gloss finish and sticks like poop to a kid's blanket. Pre-clean with TSP and rinse well with water. Any residual water will have no effect on paint (since IT is water based).

Hi Craig,
A topcoat would make it much much easier to clean and quite important when more coatings are wanted. One would want to remove as much oil, grease and other slime as possible then.

Thanks Eric, She's pretty much oil/grease free but for some reason the previous owner decided to paint the entire ER and bilge with flat black spray paint, easy way out I suppose. Tough to fault the PO on something that was a personal preference though, rest of the boat is mostly top notch. My mechanical systems are appropriately painted but working down there is akin to standing on a performing arts stage as the light never reflects.

After painting my plan is to under light everything down below with LED strips as part of rewiring the entire boat. Bunch of other projects too that should make for a full and interesting winter of maintenance and upgrades. Aggressive schedule but no more dark places for me.
