SIB Transom paint

We have a Avon Typhoon - which has a black transom

Would like to give this a tidy and a coat of paint - can anyone recommend a good transom paint - ideally black - and is there any "special technique" to transom decorating

TQ

Just a guess what about BLAKES? its marine paint and they must do black ,as you proberly know just make sure there are no cracks or voids on the transom for any salt water to get in

I've used International's Brightside. It goes on nice and easy and you get a good finish with a brush. The downside is it takes a few days to go off properly.

RIBase
To get a flawless finish - apply the paint with a mini foam roller. Don't rush it. Build up the coats gradually.
