          Comments about Bilgekote Enamel:

          I had to do some updating of batteries and wiring in my engine room and figured while everything was out of the way, I would update the paint in that area as well. Bright White helps to show problems with leaks and area's of issue. It goes on easy, the prep for the most part is minimal, and it really brought the area back to a like new look. Now I have to do the rest of the engine room to match my repair area is the downside to making things look good.

            Comments about Bilgekote Enamel:

            I found the Interlux Bilgekote to be a good finish. I used this product to paint my bunk boards before installing carpet as I had used marine grade plywood to fabricate my bunks. I also used this product to coat out the inside, unseen areas of the hull in my custom built boat. I intentionally left the painted bunks outside in the weather for several weeks and monitored the conditions. I found that water immediately beads up on the cured Bilgekote indicating no penetration. I used 2 coats of Bilgekote over 3 coats of the Interlux Epoxy Primekote. User should be aware that sanding between coats is not required if re-coated within the specified time. User should allow enough solvent / reducer for clean-up in addition to thinning for application. User will find it helpful to review the product data sheet available online, particularly the helpful hints section.

                The odor was less strong than another bilge paint used previously. Coats easily, Dries hard, no streaks.
