The one-piece sink/wall unit on my boat is a shiny smooth plastic. I'm assuming acrylic plastic. Is there a primer/ paint combo that will adhere without scatching off?

Sand all surface to be coated with 80 grit w/d paper wipe clean with denatured alcohal apply 2-3 coats of pro-line 4601 high gloss epoxy or pro thane 4800.there are lots of similar products out there that will work just fine.look @ bathtub refinishing products ask for samples ,they will give you more than enough products to do a sink/vanity for free.

Not at all to coarse.you want a good anchor profile for the best adhesion possible,i should have said lite sand be careful not to scratch the surface that it leaves deep scratches.newbies could use a finer grit say 100-120 but yes i only use 80 and my coatings and skills leave a beautiful long lasting surface and shine:yawn: .

Acrylic sinks are long-wearing bathroom and kitchen materials that can start to look a little dingy, faded or outdated long before they are ready to be removed. To give your bathroom or kitchen sink a quick facelift, apply paint to refinish the surface and make it look new again. This is an especially great option for homeowners looking for a quick update before showing or selling the home, as it is non-invasive and requires no plumbing change-outs.
1 :Clean the sink thoroughly. Use a strong cleaner meant to cut through grease, soap scum and mildew. Clean every inch of the sink to ensure that nothing is left behind to interfere with the paint job. Rinse the sink well and dry thoroughly.
2 : Rough up the surface of the sink with a palm sander and sandpaper. The palm sander vibrates slightly, which will help to rough up the acrylic without making any deep scratches in its surface. Rinse away any loose particles and dry the sink completely.
3 : Tape off the the sink's drain, edge and any faucets that come in contact with its surface to protect them from the paint.
4 : Apply EP-Acrylic paint to the sink with a paint brush. This special paint will bond with the original acrylic of the sink to provide a smooth, glossy surface. Apply at least two coats, letting the paint dry thoroughly in between. Let the paint cure for 24 to 48 hours before using your new sink.

I'd have to see this for myself. I've never seen anything that held up as well as people expected it to.

Link for EP-Acrylic, and your saying you can brush this on and it won't look like 5hit?

Short of budget restrictions, best practices would suggest replacing a new sink, tub, or tiles, rather than painting over them.
