    Powder substance

    I have a 73 double cabin MY.I seem to have a powder coming out of my engine room hatches insulation. I know there must be a fix without replacing. Help because it still looks alright except for the powder falling. Thanks Richard

    Prime and paint. Seals the dust in. Make sure to vacuum it clean and get all the grease and oil offer or you may have an adhesion problem.

    Re: Powder substance

    Didnít have this issue with my Hatteras but with my Chris Craft. I used (believe it or not) I used a water base interior smi gloss. The latex encapsulates the fibers and locks them down. Others may thing that crazy but Iíve been in the paint manufacturing business for 45 years. It works and itís easy to clean. If you donít like the sheen go with a low sheen. Either works. You will see the paint absorb in quickly. You may need two coats.

    I also used it. I used a water base interior semi gloss. The latex encapsulates the fibers and locks them down.
