Latex Paint !

I painted my topside with Valspar Premium Acrilic paint from Lowes last year, and it is holding up wonderfully. I had read a bunch online about latex and was a little sceptical, but I had previously painted with very expensive boat paint and after 9 months it was looking bad, and it mildewed. This paint was a lot less expensive, easy cleanup and it looks great. And so far, so good with respect to durability
The arguement in favor of it, that pushed me over the edge was, A lot more research goes into house paint than boat paint, because the market for it is 10 times bigger. And people that paint their house, don't want to do it again for 10 or 20 years, and want to paint with no prep. So it stands to reason that the paint has got to be good.
