Pettit EZ Cabin Coat is a high-performance, water-based paint suited for use in humid conditions that would otherwise promote mildew growth and paint failures in boat cabin interiors. Dura-White provides a moisture resistant, mildew proof finish that will stay white, good-looking, bright and color-fast for years.
EZ Cabin-Coat does not contain mercury or lead. It contains safe ingredients which prevent mold and mildew growth on the paint film for years. The finish is ideal for all interior surfaces, such as drywall, wood, wood coverings and even tile.

I have a 1988 Grand Banks and need to repaint the interior. The original paint is Z Spar 11950. There are areas where the paint is damaged up to the point the wood will need to be sealed first from water damage around the windows. The existing paint is a flat finish. Two questions: is this the paint you would recommend and is there pantone color number. The owner's manual says it is Grand Banks beige.
Pettit doesn't make the 11950 anymore, probably the closest would be the EZ Cabin-Coat in the Off White. Custom colors are not available.

Do you get brush marks or roller stipple with this paint? Or does it level like a good enamel?
It levels fairly well, though not like a topside paint.
Thanks. I'd be using this on a plywood overhead in wooden sailboat. It's already primed with a 2 part epoxy primer.
It's more like a latex than an enamel or mono. I just painted a mahog. plywood ceiling in a downeast boat and like the results. I applied 3 thin coats (since gravity was working against me) with a 1/4" nap 6" roller. (after taping and cutting in the edges with a brush)An enamel or mono would have more leveling characteristics for sure.That being said...I had no roller stipple or brush marks but the finish was not like the "glass-like" finish you get spraying awlgrip, mono or enamel.PS I'm in the sign business and have a lot of experience with paint... Cabin Coat is pretty easy to work with.
no brush marks. Beautiful product
The paint leveled quite nicely for me. Mine was a very rough surface however.
Definitely get roller stipple, some brush marks. It goes on like a semi gloss latex paint, dried bit smoother and is bit harder, more gloss. The roller stipple actually looks good, like a purposefully slightly textured finish. Hope this answers your question.
Won't know for another week or two when I finally get around to using it.
We used foam rollers and brushes and it leveled pretty well.
You might get brush marks, however, I did two coats and the results were very good.
DO I NEED PRIMER WITH THIS PAINT?
suggested, but not necessary if going over white or other light color.
I don't know the technical answer but I have not used a primer with this paint. I just made sure the surface was really clean and dry and that I did a proper job of sanding. The paint is great and I have actually used it on the interior of open El Toro dingys.Jim
No priming or sanding needed. Just a quick wash and rinse. Previous paint was oil based. New paint was applied to my cabin four years ago and it still looks good as new.
Is this a high gloss white?
It will stay white, good-looking, bright and color-fast for years, thanks.
This will not give you a yacht finish. It does not cover or hide well. Even after two rolled coats on a well-sanded plywood bulkhead, stains bleed through. It is much softer than an oil or poly finish. I was hoping for something easier to use than oil or poly. I will be stripping it off and using a two-part poly primer followed by a two-part poly or oil based poly. I should have known not to buy a product that says "EZ."
Beats up the billfold... but sure works well
1979 sailboat. Formerly had a lining stuck in with contact cement. Cleaned that off and painted with EZ Cabin Coat. Adhered beautifully and 2 coat coverage. It is water based, so had a couple of stains bleed through. Quick hit those with a strong stain blocker and touchup with EZ Coat. This stuff costs a good bit, but works well. I brush cut in and rolled (4 and 9 inch) large areas. I bought the white and a local paint store tinted for me.
Good product at a reasonable price
The only reason I only rated this paint as 4 stars is because it has not been in the boat long enough to tell how well it holds up or stands up to repeated cleaning. So far I have no problems with the paint at all.
Easy application, easy clean-up
I painted the cabin ceiling of my J30 with that paint. It was already painted before and seems like the pettit paint covers more evenly than the previous paint. It covers completely in 2 coats. Very easy to use, easy clean-up. Works well with a short nap 4" roller. Time will tell if the anti-mildew is working well or not...
