I have been impressed with Rustoleum Bull's Eye Primer. I painted one side of the aft bilge with it and it also survives fine under rain water that can sit in there for long times. I never did topcoat the primer. I used a cheap brush, cleaned it up best I could and slathered it on. It still looks flat white like I just applied it after 6 months. It takes several coats to get good coverage if your not planning on a topcoat. Someday I may topcoat it with an acrylic latex.

They have the older classic formula which is better, the newer one (plus version) if paint sits in can gets lumpy, not worth paying the higher price.
