Re: Thougts on which is better topside paint...
Rolling and tipping is rolling paint on with a roller and then lightly smoothing with a brush. Apparently, this is a common form of applying paint on boats to get a near spray-on finish. I have read an article or two where the tipping becomes unnecessary if the paint is thinned just right in relation to the temp/humidity at the time of application.
