I assume you are referring to Signature Finish?

This comes from the people that make Honey Teak - might even be the same stuff. I painted the deck on my Niagara 35 with it and was very pleased. Did it two-tone - grey on the no-skid (with compound added) and off-white elsewhere. The results are very good and the price was right - much less than $1000 for everything. Tom, the guy who runs the place is most helpful with advice and sent me a kit with everything in it that I needed. Prep was to wash the surface with detergeant (there were no big holes or major cracks - but some minor ones, the paint covered them). I used two rollers to apply and tip but he has gives instructions about other application methods. The use of vinyl masking tape is critical to a good job - don't skimp on it even if it is pricy. I did the job about five years ago and no sign on wear or breakdown. Good stuff and designed for DIY, quality is not as good as a pro spray job but the price differential is huge.
