Painting wood in the bilge

Postby feeez » June 8th, 2015, 4:24 pm

I have to add a new wooden platform to mount a battery in my engine compartment. I would appreciate some recommendations on what kind of paint to use. I may also paint the existing platforms while I am at it.

Thanks

I would encase it in resin and cloth. Before being installed
Thanks

Fraser, another idea is to buy custom cut checker board at a metal shop and screw it down. I did it on my Silverton an plan on doing it again. Looks like a factory install.

I know I'm a little late to the party, but what about using Star Board material. Won't rot, & easy to work with....

Never too late for a tip Jnick. I was able to get around adding the wood after all.

Painting wood in the bilge

Postby anothernewb » December 18th, 2015, 2:11 am

I'm always late to the party...

You wouldn't happen to have some photos of your battery set up, would you? Or anybody's really. I don't really care for they way my set up is mounted and I'm thinking about redoing it while the motors are out.
