Brightside VS. Easypoxy

I have used Easypoxy (on complete 23'' sailboat, hull and deck), Brightside (on 2 8'' sabots & 9'' dory), and Toplac (on complete 27'' sailboat, also hull and deck). My actual experiences are:
Easypoxy: good coverage but very poor gloss retention after less than 1 year. (I used dark colors on all these boats.)
Brightside: coverage not very good, more coats required, but very good gloss after time.
Toplac: Best of both worlds for a one part paint. Covered well and has like new gloss two years later.
