    Hi All,

    Hoping one of you may be able to help, i'm going to be building a 25ft sportfisher / cruiser, and have been doing a lot of research of interior layouts online, something that caught my eye in Australia, the USA and New Zealand is they use a fleck paint to paint the interiors of the boats, and it would be ideal for inside a boat to be honest, wouldn't show up much dirt.

    Here are a few links to various suppliers of it i have found in the countries mentioned,

    Roxatone AMA https://mixxpaint.com/ama-colors-b.html

    Aqua Fleck White Decorative Fleck Finish 4 Litres https://varietypaints.com.au/collections/aquafleck-decorative-fleck-coating/products/aqua-fleck-white-decorative-fleck-finish-4-litres

    Any ideas on where to get something like this in the UK or Europe?

    Thanks
    Robert

    Fleck coatings and webbing are utilized most often to hide poor finish work.
    If you do nice work, show it off with a nice coat of paint!
    Interior layout for a 25ā€™ cruiser is quite the conundrum, what did you come up with for layout?
    Got some pics?

    Morning,
    Thanks for your reply, the main reason i was looking at the fleck paint, was incase of the boat being used for fishing, in that case the fleck paint would come into it's own and hide or mask the mess a bit. But a good coat of colour is what i will go with.

    I am chopping and changing the look of this boat, too many times, want to get it right, it's a dream come true to get what will hopefully be the first of many built, and i want it to be as good as it can be.

    Here's a render of it from side on that I did last night. Any opinion's on the shape and look would be more than welcome. 289572687_1096025197936692_7931014122254614746_n.jpg 287969437_1237459830394789_286607553127979086_n.jpg 280564667_5131273600313976_3824420570037637611_n.jpg

    Web and fleck both have rough surfaces that will be difficult to remove fish goo from.

    Iā€™d think that in order to be comfortable as a cruiser, the foredeck might need to be raised for some headroom in the cabin.
    What is the interior layout?
