exterior acrylic latex paint


Im just curious as to how well exterior acrylic latex paint will protect wood in very wet conditions. I am building a jon boat and was told to use oil based instead. Im sure it would be better but i really dont want to change it unless the latex paint is going to ruin the wood. The inside is latex and the outside will be fiberglass.

You need some Marine paint. Do you have a Sherwin Williams, Benjamin Moore or a real paint store near you?

You may not find what you need at a paint store that sells mainly home products unless they special order for you. Is there a marine supplier near you? I would check to see what product lines they carry.

yes i have Sherwin Williams near me and a marine store but, what i was asking is how well will it stand up. I know its not the best choice. But i dont have much money to spend and i have lots of left over acylic latex from other projects. The boat is already primed and has 2 coats of latex on it so it would be a pain to take off. I dont have a problem with having to touch up spots every now and then. If there was a way to put an oil based over the latex i would probably do that but i know oil over latex is not a good idea. I just need to know if it will keep the wood protected.
