I was almost going to use Perfection last year when I re coated the topsides of the Tartan 30. The boat yard put me on to Awl-Craft which is a more forgiving version of Awl Grip. I was exceptionally pleased. FYI, I found it available through CarQuest Auto Parts. They beat the pants off anyone else price wise too. They cater to paint shops wholesale and carry the boat stuff too but this may only be in certain markets.
The Perfection looks like a great product. I watched all the videos and almost went that way. I'll be watching for the resolution to your issue.
