    Well, here is what I've done and so far, so very good.

    I used an all purpose marine epoxy paste called PC-11 ($5) to fill in the minor hairline cracks. After waiting about 10 hours I sanded them down to a somewhat nice finish.

    Then I used product by Klenks ($30), that is made to refinish fiberglass and plastic tubs. It is a two-part liquid epoxy. It only comes in white so now I have a green and white sink. Who cares?

    I am on my second coat and it looks great. It's also smooth as butter. And yes it is chemical resistant and both items were available at Home Depot.

    Another option is truck bed liner. You can have it sprayed like Rhino lining, Duraliner ETC. They do a great job in several colors and can be sprayed to a smooth finish or there is a roll on version available in black at checker auto.

    David, I live in rural Kentucky, and it is the same issue. Lots of boats, no place for parts or repair. The internet was my savior when building my darkroom sink.

    I am with the others on this. The West Epoxy or "gelcoat" system is the easiest to apply and best looking. It is also the most expensive. Lots of colors to choose from though...

    Marine paint is an option, as long as it will stick. You may have to lightly sand the surface to make sure that this happens.

    something witty and profound needs to be inserted here...

    Well, thanks everyone for the input. I will definitely remember this if I build another darkroom and sink.

    For now, this one will work. Now I can move onto the walls.

    Thanks again.
