I have recently purchased a mid-80s 18' Klamath aluminum open fishing boat. I'll use the boat primarily on the Kenai.
The interior was painted years ago and i want to re-paint it.
Is there a good product to prep the inside for paint? Should i use TSP or similar? Scuff it up with a a scrubber pad? Both?
I'm planning to use an epoxy paint similar to what you'd put on the floor of your garage mixed with some sand for traction. Good idea or is there another product i should consider?
