Re: Painting bilge space
Clean out the bilge as best you can with the scraper and a green 3M scrubber. Wash it out with a degreaser and rinse thoroughly. Let it dry. Then apply a past made from diatomaceous earth and denatured alcohol. Lay it on thick and let it dry. When dry, vacuum it out while you brush it with a stiff brush. Give it another good wash. Dry. You can then apply two coats of Bilgecoat or better yet, two coats of Interlux Interprotect 300 followed by two coats of the Bilgecoat. It worked well for by bilges that had years of oil and diesel ingrained.
