With my experience of B&Q staff I'd probably speak to a boat chandlers first, just a quick call to get some advise on pai...

When I enquired about paint (last year) I was told to speak to a boat chandlers because what we've got is exactly like a GRP boat and they're used to repainting them.

If you've got quilting, all be it a bit stinky, I'd definitely keep it. It can be cleaned quite effectively. My other half (Sara) is a valeter ...
