    hi fallguy.
    i cant use fans but i am not living in the boat at the moment. i can open the hatch and door so can make a natural ventilation, i think in a week or two inside will not be toxic anymore. Or?
    so do you prefer turpentine paint over acylic?

    Mineral spirits (white spirits) is the turpentine substitute. Turps is a natural, distilled product, while mineral spirits is a petroleum mix (non-synthetic).

    Most prefer the odor of mineral spirits over turps, though I find it amusing you like turps. I suspect a sign of your age, when most coatings used turps as the vehicle.
