.. but there's really no way to avoid scars in dark colours other than avoid making them in the first place.
I thought that would probably be the consensus... don't run into sh*t
My expectations are that is would look good initially, OK after a few years, beat-up for a few years, then re-do.
This will be DIY, roll and tip. I did Brightsides on a previous boat and found I had some brush marks, but, was happy with the results... in white. Will it be really difficult to get decent finish in a dark color?
