Deck paint

I have a fiberglass troller that I'm looking to re-paint the interior sides of the deck/ hull, cap rails, and bow area. What types of paints do other trollers use? Pro vs cons?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Fall/ Winter King Keeper to Shaker Ratio

Thank you all for the help. I had a strong hunch that that ratio wasn't right so that's why I started asking for the advice. It's much appreciated and I don't want be doing anything detrimental to the fishery.

Re: Fall/ Winter King Keeper to Shaker Ratio

Thank you for the advice. I was getting worried about that 12 to 1 ratio being to high and that I was doing something detrimental to the fishery.

Re: Chain length on Stabilizers

Thanks for the responses.

I can't find stainless chain here in Juneau - is it readily available at Murray Pacific in Sitka or Ketchikan?

Are you using just spectra without chain?

Chain length on Stabilizers

I am in the process of rigging up my stabilizers and I am having some questions about whether I am doing it right? Is there a standard size of chain used? What length of chain is standard?

Thanks in advance!

Re: UHMW vs HDPE

There are a number of plastics companies on the west coast that stock UHMW in different colors and makes. Calsak plastics and laird plastics are who I have been in contact with.

Re: UHMW vs HDPE

When bending it was heat needed? Did you use any type of glue along with screwing down to the boat?
