Brightside VS. Easypoxy

I have read (on Interlux''s site) that recent tests in Florida (where I sail BTW) showed Toplac to have 5 plus year gloss retention. I find this somewhat hard to swallow, but intriguing. My interpretation was that Interlux was claiming that the paint is almost as hard as 2-part with nearly the longevity, but with an ease of application similar to single-part paints.

West Marine''s site had 3 reviews posted for Toplac. Two could have been written by Interlux, they were so glowing. The other one was one of the biggest slams I have ever read. It stated that it covered poorly, looked like #%&*! and that it was the worst paint he had ever used.

I am interested in anyone else who may have experience with this product. Most specifically, I am looking for information on Toplac''s durability and its application.

Thanks. Doug
