I had my Jimmy Skiff out on the bay for a float-out last week. Yesterday, I added a couple pieces of stainless to the skeg, and examined the hull in detail. Underside looked reasonable: scratches in the paint where I'd grounded on the rocky/oyster-y bottom, and parts of the skeg (now protected with stainless strips) worn to the epoxy. But the inside was also missing paint.
The hull is finished with: epoxy, Interlux primer, Baer porch paint on the outside; epoxy, scuffed up, and covered directly with porch paint on the inside. I trekked in sand while launching, and the palces in the inside that were missing paint were the ones where my feet had around over this. Epoxy underneath looked sound, and I wasn't able to dislodge any great flakes of paint with my fingernail, but little flecks that were still there between the scratches did come off.
What should I do? Best case, I can put in some wooden floors and the finish will be good enough (and as a bonus, I don't have to sit in bilge water). Worst case, I used the wrong paint, and it all needs to be redone. What do you think?
