Brightside VS. Easypoxy

All the paint jobs were done in the winter in Southern California. The most recent, Toplac, was done February 2002. It was very damp, even rained one day, with temps in the 50s and 60s F. I did a 27'' sailboat topsides (hull) dark green in a boatyard over a 4 day weekend, using the roller and brush method. I did the deck(ivory color)over a longer period of time later in the season.(It was much more time consuming.) It admittedly does not look as good as a two-part paint job professionally done. But it literally cost me 1/10th what a similar boat paid for such a job, it looks quite nice, and I''m very pleased with it.
