Transom paint?

Does anyone know what kind of paint is used on wooden transoms on SIBS?
As I have a few patches I would like to repaint.
Cheers,
Geoff

I used polyester resin with some wood stain mixed in, gave a nice durable finish.

I would coat with epoxy first and then paint over it - or use epoxy paint.

I was wondering what they are painted with as standard, as I would hopefully just be touching in gaps in the paint. Both of the sibs I have have matt black paint on the transom.
Cheers,
Geoff

All the SIBs i have owned have had varnished transoms, so I can't help with specific paint details. Most boat paints tend to be gloss or semi gloss (satin) rather than matt.

Is it just damage to the paint you want to touch up, or has it affected the underlying wood?

If it is purely cosmetic, then a touch up with something like Blake's Multicoat should be fine.

Quote:
Blakes MultiCoat




High opacity satin topcoat and primer for all areas, including decks, bilges & lockers. Ideal for all areas above the waterline where a semi-gloss durable topcoat is required. Also can be used as a complete coating system onto new or bare wood. Coverage 11m2 Thinners/Brushwash No I Brush/Spray
If it has gone deeper, than fill with an epoxy filler first.

Cheers

Chris
