I am building a cape henry 21 by dudley dix.

I am undecided with regards to what paint to use for the interior.

Water based epoxy sounds good with respect to clean up ect.

But I have read some negative coments.

I have purchased some two part epoxy u/coat does anyone have any coments?

That's a lovely boat design, can we see some photos sometime please.

I've treated my decks with water based epoxy this year and it seems to have done a remarkable job.

However, how long it will last only time will tell.

I'm assuming that you are painting the interior during the building process.

So, there will be parts that will be difficult to repaint once she has been finished and fitted out.

In which case I would recommend using a 'tried and tested' coating, a good quality marine paint.
