Re: Painting Question, if I may?

House paint isn't a gloss paint. And house paint does break down, does chalk, but it is a very different product from what is used on cars boats and planes. Or do you think the paint makers are all lying when they say to use a wax (or proprietary material) for routine protection? The hull makers all lying about protecting gelcoat? The chalky gelcoat you see on unwaxed hulls, just coincidence?
