Flowcoat or bilge paint

Fitted a new bulkhead to form anchor locker. It's made of closed cell foam and epoxy glass/resin.

Just want to finish it off so it matches the white inside of the hull.

Should I flowcoat, which I have no idea how. Or use a Recomended bilge paint ?? Thanks gt

Flowcoat for sure. Just done it on my rib, new seat/locker. Very easy and top finish. Email me or PM me for my number and I'll talk you through it.

If you do decide on bilge paint then I can recommend Danboline as being pretty easy to use and hard wearing. From this to this in a few easy steps.....

I don't think polyester flowcoat will stick very well to epoxy resin.
