    I have some old interior silk paint to use up.....and some sea-facing beach hut doors to paint.

    If I paint the doors with primer, then the interior silk paint and finish with a layer of yacht varnish, will it work? ..and for how long, etc.

    Save yourself a load of worry and buy some proper paint.

    The science of it goes over my head - I don't understand why the yacht varnish wouldn't protect it.
