Interior boat storage shed material
I'm trying to find a material that will withstand lots of moisture and possible flooding for the interior of a storage shed built on a dock. The interior is spotted with nails from the exterior siding and I'm concerned that small hands (grandchildren) and inflatable rafts will find the nails.
Can regular pegboard be covered with some kind of paint and withstand the moisture?

Pegboard, no.

There is this plastic sheeting they use in wet areas of commercial kitchens, its white and ugly...but it would withstand it.

Ayuh,... This, I believe is what Andrew is talkin' about,...
Pretty much any Siding will work,... My garage is lined with steel siding...

The plastic panels can be bought at Menards about 20.00 each and come in I believe 2 colors white and almond they are 4x8 sheets and are meant to be exposed to moisture . Hope thats what you are referring too. Kerry

The same type product also comes in rolls if you can find it. Called Kemlite, I think. the same material they line refrigerator reefer trailers with. They manufacture a brand about 30 miles from where I lived.

Several years ago I bought a huge amount as scrap,dings tears shorts etc. Lined several buildings insude and very versitile. IF you lived close enough I still have more than I need and could fix you up quick. It is a fiberglass based, washable, and will withstand hard knocks. One side pebble grained,other side smooth. Downside is it yellows in sunlight.

I think those 4X8 sheets used to be called dairy barn liner,,,sure it isnt now but most people still recognize what you mean from that. Probably needs a backer board of some type, depending if you get sharp pokes. Nice part is its white and bright.
